GENERAL MANAGER

CONNECT TRANSIT, BLOOMINGTON-NORMAL, IL

Connect Transit, which provides fixed route, express bus, and paratransit service throughout the twin-cities of Bloomington-Normal, IL, is seeking a visionary, committed, community-minded, and collaborative leader with a proven history of executive level experience in the transit industry to serve as its next General Manager (GM).

The metro area, population 170,000, boasts an excellent quality of life and cost of living, with first-class health care, cultural and recreational amenities, as well as higher educational institutions that depend on Connect Transit services, including Illinois State University, Illinois Wesleyan University, Lincoln College and Heartland Community College.

Home to major corporations such as State Farm Insurance and the sustainable transportation and electric vehicle manufacturer, Rivian Automotive, LLC, the metro area’s business-friendly environment is enhanced by its strategic location within a two-hour drive of Chicago, St. Louis, and Indianapolis, and is served by regular Amtrak and intercity bus service.

Reporting directly to the Board, the next GM will be responsible for all aspects of the day-to-day operation of the system, focused on providing on-time, reliable and equitable fixed-route and paratransit/ADA service, while ensuring a safe environment for both customers and employees.

He/she will also oversee all internal functions such as maintenance, administration, capital & operating budgeting, finance, planning, procurement, contract & project management, marketing, and customer service.

Working in concert with the Board, the next GM will help develop and advance both short- and long-range strategic plans that will help Connect evolve to meet the needs of a growing and increasingly diverse riding public.

Those plans must include, and be empathetic to, community and stakeholder group input, while focusing on delivering safe, industry-leading transit services that provide the highest rate of return on taxpayer and funding partner investment.

Accordingly, the ideal candidate must not only be fully knowledgeable of the latest transit industry management practices and emerging technologies, but must possess exceptional interpersonal, presentational, and communication skills to ensure that the Board and the public are regularly and fully informed about plans and actions that are being taken to maintain and improve service.

He/she must sustain an inclusive and equitable working environment, leveraging the experience of the system’s existing management and operating teams, encouraging staff development and diversity, maintaining positive labor relations, and fostering an esprit de corps that allows Connect to continue delivering first-class service to its riders.

Of critical importance is the ability to build positive long-term relationships with a broad range of external stakeholders, community groups, higher educational institutions, health care providers, business organizations and other transportation partners, assessing and integrating their disparate transportation needs into both the strategic and day to day decision-making process.

In that regard, the next GM must also be particularly adept at developing and maintaining constructive partnerships with local, state and federal elected officials, including both the Bloomington and Normal City Councils, the State Legislature, and Congress, as well as with funding and regulatory partners, such as the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT.)
