AC Transit needs to hire bus operators and is offering new drivers up to $1,500 within the first year of employment.

“That includes $500 upon completion of 3 months of driving after graduation, and $1,000 upon completion of 12 months employment from hire date,” the transit agency said.

The incentive is available through Nov. 21, 2022.

Bus operators earn $24.16 per hour after training and can potentially make up to $34.51 per hour after four years. Employee monthly contribution for medical, dental and vision is a flat rate of $120 with unlimited number of qualified dependents.

“Previous Bus Operator or commercial driving experience is not required,” according to AC Transit. “We will provide a paid training program consisting of both classroom and behind-the-wheel instruction. This is an excellent opportunity to learn transit from the ground up.”
