MINNEAPOLIS, MN — Metro Transit is looking to hire new bus drivers. If you like working with people and want to make a difference in your community, here is your chance.

Join the July Driver Hiring Event at Metro Transit Instruction Center, 725 North 7th Street, Minneapolis, on July 17, from 9 a.m. to noon.

Parking is limited so it is best for you to take transit to the event (served by routes 5, 9, 19, 22, and METRO C Line)

Drivers begin at more than $20 per hour — even during training — and receive outstanding benefits, such as health care, annual salary increases, a pension plan, an unlimited-ride bus pass, and a possibility of a $1,000 hiring bonus.

- Licensed and active driver for the past five years (any class license).

- No more than two moving violations within the past three years.

- No suspensions longer than 90 days within the past three years.

- License not revoked or withdrawn within the past three years.

You might also be required to obtain a commercial learner’s permit.

Please note that the following driving-related convictions (within the past 10 years) will result in automatic disqualification:


- Open bottle.

- Leaving the scene of an accident.

- Refusing to comply with implied consent.

- Careless or reckless driving.

- Inattentive driving.
