Recreational and business opportunities are within easy, convenient reach thanks to AC Transit and other partner agencies.

Working under the General Manager and with policy direction from the Board of Directors, the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) is responsible for overseeing AC Transit’s financial operations, which has a total organization-wide staff of 2200 employees and a $466 million dollar operating budget, as well as a capital budget.

As at its inception, AC Transit is continually looking forward for better ways to move people.
