Thanks to a Workforce Development Grant, Omnitrans is introducing a series of FREE 1-week training programs to prepare participants for a career as a transit driver with a regional transit agency!
The selection process to become a coach operator can be very stringent, and initial testing has proven to be a big hurdle for many. The Bridge Training Program will teach various topics to provide candidates with the tools they need to successfully apply for and pass the first phase of the hiring process.
Program classes will be held Monday through Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. beginning in October.
Each program will culminate with a job fair, where the graduates will have the opportunity to interview with several regional transit agencies.
A career in transit can be both lucrative and rewarding.
Possible benefits might include:
- $12 – 15 an hour average starting pay
- Medical/Dental/Vision Plans
- Retirement Program
- Tuition Assistance Program
- Paid Sick Leave
- Paid Vacation
- Paid Holidays
- Employee Wellness Program
