About the Job

  • We are looking for people with great customer service skills and enjoy working with the public.
  • Both driver positions are full time and work varied shifts, early morning and late evening hours, including holidays and weekends.
  • You must be able to successfully complete a Drug & Alcohol Test, Physical Assessment, Profile Test, Driving Record Check, and Background Check.

There are two bus driver positions available with immediate vacancies. Don’t have your Commercial Driver’s License (CDL)? No worries, we will teach you all aspects of the CDL driving test before you take the Ohio State driving test. You will drive an RTA bus when you take the test. By the end of training, you will have logged many hours driving a bus, be very comfortable behind the wheel and be ready to begin serving our customers.
