CEO Stop with Sue Dreier
I'm Sue Dreier. I'm CEO of Pierce Transit, where I oversee approximately 916 employees with a $153 million budget. Pierce Transit provides community members with more than 10 million trips a year using 140 buses, 346 Vanpool vans and 100 paratransit vehicles. The Pierce Transit Board of Commissioners selected me for the job in early 2015 and I began my tenure in May of that year.
I came to Pierce Transit from Salem-Keizer Transit in Salem, Oregon where I served as Chief Operating Officer and managed the agency’s day-to-day operations, including fixed-route service, maintenance, security, customer service, and contracted services. I also served on the agency’s Executive Team, creating district-wide policies, goals and values, the agency’s budget, and capital and strategic plans.
Prior to working at Salem-Keizer, I served at Lane Transit District in Eugene, Oregon, where I began my transit career as a transit operator. I held a number of positions at Lane, ending my tenure there as Transit Services Manager. While at Lane I took a leadership role in crafting and implementing an operational plan for the agency’s first bus rapid transit project.
I believe that transit is about connecting people with their communities and is excited about leading Pierce Transit into a new era of transportation leadership and community service.
