If I Were Asking the Questions

If I were on the interview committee for TriMet’s General Manager position, here’s what I’d be asking:

  1. How will you ensure that the agency has sufficient financial reserves to whether economic downturns without extensive service cuts?
  2. How would you develop a series of measures to determine if transit service is being provided equitably across geographic areas and socio-economic groups of customers? How would you balance priority for these measures with maximizing ridership and providing efficient service?
  3. How will you get health care costs under control?

What would you ask?
