The San Pablo EDC is hosting a virtual Bus Driver Career & Recruitment Day on Thursday, Feb. 10, from 2-3 pm, via Zoom and telephone.
Two local employers, Bauer’s Intelligent Transportation and Michael’s Transportation Services, will be present to talk about the employment opportunities they are offering and to help interested applicants apply. Michael’s Transportation Services also operates a commercial driver training school, which is eligible for funding from the San Pablo EDC.
The virtual job fair is occurring amid “tremendous demand” for bus drivers of all kinds in jobs that often pay $30 per hour and up and have excellent benefits, according to San Pablo EDC. Public transit agencies, private transportation companies, school districts and more are all desperate for drivers.
The training course to prepare for the commercial driver’s license test is typically very short, usually 4-6 weeks. San Pablo EDC has funding available to help pay for the cost of bus driver CDL training for those interested.
