Surface Passenger Transportation Salary Survey

The Surface Passenger Transportation Salary Survey reports compensation data for 91 benchmark jobs related to a variety of land and marine passenger transportation activities. The survey includes urban transit systems; ferry systems; chartered bus, school bus, and interurban bus transportation; and taxis (including water taxis). The industry survey is available by geographic area (US Region or US National) for $589.

The Surface Passenger Transportation Salary Survey documents market-based pay data for 6 executive and 85 non-management salary benchmark jobs from up to three databases: digitized public sources, ERI Assessor Series data, and direct participants. The following information is reported for each job title (salary data are shown in means, medians, and percentile cuts):

  • Annual Salary
  • Incentive/Variable Pay
  • Total Direct Annual Compensation
  • Job Description
  • Graph with a Trend Line and Data Points
  • Selected Characteristics of the Occupation (SCO)

Survey information is solicited through traditional mail, email, and online questionnaires. Each data submission is thoroughly screened by our team of experienced researchers prior to inclusion in a survey. No attempt is made to alter incumbent data as reported other than to normalize collected compensation amounts to a common date. Data collection begins October and ends March. Survey results are published annually in July, with an effective data date of March 31 of the given survey year.
