After a two-year hiatus, Transit Talent has reprised its annual salary survey of transit system employees in the U.S. and Canada.


The numbers for Transit Talent's 2013 Salary Survey were collected from more than 1,600 transit professionals. The data was gathered in November 2013. Respondents were asked to provide base salary information as of Oct. 1, 2013.

The salary data covers 25 departments/disciplines, with new categories created this year for Accounting, Auditing and Civil Rights. Because of the differing job duties and titles at transit agencies, respondents selected job categories, titles and brief job descriptions that most closely matched their own. Very rarely do the respondents' titles and descriptions perfectly match the offered titles and descriptions, so care should be taken in drawing strong conclusions from this salary data.

Special thanks go out to the folks who responded to the survey. Although it only takes a couple of minutes to fill out the questionnaire, it's still a burden when you've got myriad other tasks awaiting you. Your efforts are very much appreciated! Questions or comments about this survey can be e-mailed to Steve Hirano at steve.hirano@TransitTalent.com
