Job Description

How would you like to work for a progressive transit agency, alongside a committed staff, in a vibrant and engaged community, in one of the most beautiful areas of the country? KL2 Connects LLC has been retained by the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority in St. Petersburg, Florida to recruit its next Director of Transportation.


Reporting directly to the Chief Operating Officer, the Director will oversee the daily operations of PSTA’s 40-route transit service and leads its team of 22 Transportation Supervisors and 400 Bus Operators. PSTA, which serves all of Pinellas County, is a dynamic agency that offers innovative transit and mobility programs. In 2022 PSTA will launch SunRunner, the Tampa Bay Region’s first Bus Rapid Transit route, and this position will be a key part of that successful initiative. This is an exciting opportunity for you to use your leadership ability, operations knowledge, interpersonal skills, and labor relations experience in the service of an industry-leading public transit authority.


The position requires a high school diploma or G.E.D. (college degree preferred) plus relevant work experience in public transportation or a related field. PSTA may consider a combination of experience supplemented by additional courses or training in transportation, business, or another relevant area. The position requires at least five years of transit industry experience (including three years managing staff in progressively responsible positions). Preferred experience includes working with labor unions (including day to day interactions and contract negotiations). PSTA also desires advanced software skills including but not limited to MS Windows, MS Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint, and Outlook). For additional detail please review the position brochure.


This is an excellent opportunity that offers attractive compensation, benefits, and relocation.  PSTA is an Equal Employment Opportunity Employer that values diversity at all levels of its workforce — women and minorities are encouraged to apply. To be considered, go to, select the PSTA listing, and upload your letter of interest, resume, salary expectations, and 4-5 professional references (preferably supervisory and including name, title, phone, email address, and relationship to you).
