TAT In the Spotlight - Becky Miller

Becky Miller credits her love for travel and her desire to help people for creating a natural pathway into a career with transit.

When she traveled in foreign countries – and even on the East Coast of the United States -- she delighted in the access robust transit systems provided her to go wherever she wanted. That appreciation for transit, combined with what she learned working as a victim advocate for five years in Colorado, where she provided support to crime victims and helped promote safety, healing and a voice for them, resulted in her applying for and receiving her first position with the Arizona Transit Association (AzTA) in 2005. She is now completing her 19th year.

“The best part of working in transit, “Miller explained, “is, of course, the people and the impact transit has on each of us. Transit allows each person access to a better quality of life, whether you’re getting to medical appointments, job/school or making memories in your personal life.” 

She continued, “During Covid, transit employees were deemed ‘essential/front-line workers.’ We were so proud of that recognition, because it came from the federal level.”
