KL2 Connects LLC has been retained by VIA Metropolitan Transit to recruit the agency’s next Vice President, Fleet and Facilities Maintenance. VIA provides San Antonio and surrounding communities with bus and paratransit services. With local support, a strong financial position (a AAA bond rating), and excellent growth potential (Mayor Nirenberg has prioritized the development a more robust public transportation system), VIA is at an exciting point in its history, and this position will play a key role in its future. Reporting to VIA’s Deputy CEO, the winning candidate will oversee VIA’s Vehicle Maintenance and Facilities Maintenance departments, ensuring that VIA’s fleet of over 500 buses as well as vans, and support vehicles operate at peak performance and that its operating and customer facilities are maintained in a state-of-good-repair.
