Specific technical expertise in transit planning or transportation engineering isn’t absolutely necessary; rather, it is more critical to have the ability to think strategically about transit as a necessary function of the public right-of-way and to work with individual cities, towns, and stakeholders to make transit a meaningful part of the community. Someone familiar with both urban and rural planning is ideal as large sections of UTA’s service area are still quite isolated and car dependent. A collaborative background working with metropolitan planning organizations will be highly desirable.
