Regional Transportation Planner

Do you want to help improve transportation in Northern Virginia? Do you want to work for an organization that values its employees, encourages initiative, and fosters career development? Are you ambitious, adaptable, and generally awesome? This is a unique opportunity to work for a unique organization – dynamic, fast paced, and professionally rewarding. Are you up for the challenge?

If so, the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) is a perfect match. We are a regional government entity with a dedicated revenue stream for making transportation investments. The Authority has an enthusiastic staff and is hiring an early-career regional transportation planner to support its evolving transportation planning responsibilities, evaluate candidate regional projects to invest in, and to oversee our growing portfolio of transportation investments in Northern Virginia. 

In less than six years, NVTA has directly invested $2 billion in multimodal transportation projects across the Northern Virginia region. This is growing by $400 million every two years. NVTA staff work closely with their counterparts at Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, and Prince William Counties, together with the five cities in Northern Virginia, the region’s five largest towns, VRE, Omniride, WMATA, and numerous other regional partners and stakeholders. 

We are about to launch updates to both TransAction (the long range transportation plan for Northern Virginia) and our Six Year Program. To support this growing workload, we are hiring a recent graduate with some experience in (and a lot of passion for) transportation planning and data-driven analysis. Capabilities in data visualization, web content development, and event management would be a plus, together with an interest in innovative transportation technologies and Mobility-as-a-Service.

Please send a cover letter with your resume to This position is full-time with a benefits package consistent with other state, regional and local governments in Northern Virginia.
