Bus Drivers

To apply to become a student bus driver, fill out and submit an online application (requires a UMass NetID login... if you don't have one, please contact Don Chapman).

Why should you work here?

  • Drivers start at $10.25 per hour! ($9 during training)
  • You can make your own schedule
  • We pay for your training, CDL permit AND license
  • There is room to grow - we offer positions that prepare you for a career outside of school

What Opportunities for Advancement Are There?

All UMass Transit employees start out as drivers, but there are many promotional positions available to student employees. For instance, you can become a field trip driver, a trainer, a radio operator, a driver supervisor, or a student staff member. These are supervisory positions, and they can help you gain valuable experience that future employers will be looking for. This also allows for a very diverse work-week, and creates more money-making opportunities.
