This data set is the most recent and reflects information as of December 2019. Data for prior years can be found under the Search Data menu item at the top of the page.

The Regional Transportation District is a public agency and these records are public information.

A couple notes regarding changes for RTD's General Manager/CEO.

General Manager Dave Genova retired effective January 21, 2020. The RTD Board of Directors on a 10-5 vote hired Paul Ballard as interim general manager with base salary $350,000 and additional benefits. Paul Ballard is not included in this spreadsheet as this data set is from end of the year and he was hired in late January.

Dave Genova's base salary for 2020 was $305,000 with additional benefits.

The district's financial challenges have prompted questions from the public and the state legislature about RTD's outlook and whether the district is top-heavy. Senate Bill 151 proposes a compensation and benefits audit and will be heard in committee the first week of March 2020.

I have asked for the documentation from the last time RTD did a compensation audit. It can't be found.

For those who wonder how much the board of directors are paid -- each of the 15 directors receives $12,000 annual compensation.  No pension or benefits, besides a free transit pass.
