Transit Talent

Transit Talent was founded in 2008 by Steve Hirano, a magazine journalist with experience covering the public transportation and school bus industries. It has grown into the most comprehensive career resource for the transit industry, with thousands of career listings and more than 1 million page views annually.

The Transit Talent website started as a stand-alone resource for career opportunities, but was soon supplemented by the Transit Intelligence email newsletter, which helped disseminate job openings, as well as industry news and commentary.

A few years after its launch, Transit Talent began advertising procurement listings, such as RFPs, IFBs and RFQs. These listings were also added to the Transit Intelligence newsletter, making it a valuable resource for both transit agencies and industry vendors.

Every few years, Transit Talent conducts a salary survey of transit system employees. View latest survey results

In 2014, we launched a sister site called Water District Jobs for professionals in the water and wastewater industries.

The response we've received from Transit Talent has been excellent. We posted a small technology project and received six proposals!
