Student Jobs

Do you love to drive and have at least two semesters remaining at UMass? Want a job with flexible hours? UMass Transit Services is always looking for more students to hire as UMass Transit bus drivers and Special Transportation van drivers!

As a bus operator at UMTS, you will be professionally trained to handle a 35, 40, and 60 foot, multi-ton transit coach vehicle. While it may seem daunting, our staff of over 150 student drivers can attest to the fact that this job is an invaluable experience that is unlike any other in the Pioneer Valley. UMTS will pay you while you are in training as well as cover the costs of your Commercial Driver's License and permit.

We are now hiring for training over summer break. Housing (in the Honors dorms) and meals (via YCMP) are provided to those not living in the area.

Summer Training: 

  • Session 1: May 27th to June 16th
  • Session 2: July 8th to July 27th
  • Session 3: August 12th to September 1st
    (with an option for transitional early move-in housing into the Fall semester schedule)

CDL permit, training and license are all PAID and driving-pay starts at $13.25 per hour.

Work around classes in a position that prepares you for a career outside of school.

Our instructors are experienced student drivers who are friendly and eager to teach! Apply today!
