The San Jose Mercury News has a Bay Area public employee compensation database. The link I provide is set to filter for Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) employees. They get paid very very well.
If anyone pokes around that database with other filters I would be curious if you reported back in the comments with links to other especially highly paid government employees.
On the bright side, at least public transit reduces traffic on the roads. By contrast, some other government agencies have a net negative impact and would do so even if they cost nothing to fund. In particular, any social program that reduces the cost of irresponsible behavior (especially irresponsible reproduction) generates large long term costs.
