Operator Career Day attendees can get an up-close look at what it takes to succeed as at Metro by learning about a “day-in-the-life” of a bus operator. Information about the many employee benefits at Metro will also be available, as well as on-site hiring assessments and interviews.

Applicants do not need a CDL to apply. Qualified applicants will receive Metro assistance through the CDL process along with reimbursement for CDL fees.
