RTD seeks input on general manager search

The Regional Transportation District is seeking input from the community about the characteristics and professional skills people would like to see in the agency's next general manager, as well as hear feedback about the operation of the RTD system in general.

Questions include rating personal characteristics, importance of duties for a general manager, as well as questions about critical issues for RTD, what is working well and what can be improved. The survey will be available through June 23. 

"It's important to the board of directors that we offer our community and RTD riders the opportunity to be involved in the general manager search process," says Chuck Sisk, RTD board chair. "This public input is one element we will consider as we choose the next leader of RTD."

RTD is looking for a new general manager to replace Phil Washington, who is headed to California to lead the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, known as Metro. Washington has guided RTD since 2009 and overseen FasTracks, the multi-billion dollar project to add 122 miles of track to RTD's rail-transit network. Metro also is undertaking a major expansion of its rail network in L.A.
