Seasonal Entry Level - Seasonal Bus Driver

Steamboat Springs is a real Colorado mountain town that is home to a world-class ski resort known around the globe for its champagne powder snow.  Steamboat Springs Transit is looking to fill bus driver positions for the upcoming winter ski season with safe and reliable drivers. 

We will have 2 training classes coming up.  The first paid training class will begin on October 21, 2020.  The 4 week - 160-hour training class is designed to help anyone obtain their Colorado CDL Class B driver's license.  We will pay you $12.00 an hour to attend the CDL class.  Once you successfully obtain your CDL and pass the training class, you will be promoted and paid $19.17 an hour for the remainder of the winter season.  Steamboat Springs Transit also offers an extra $1.00 an hour to all shifts that run significantly past midnight.  We will run a second training class at the start of December.  Please call for the start date details of the December training class. 

The typical working week is 36-40 hours made up of 4 & 5 day work weeks.  The newer bus drivers usually work weekends & nights. The bus service runs from 5:00 am to 4:00 am daily. 

Our bus drivers are responsible for safely operating a public transportation bus and transporting passengers on a prescribed route, on time, and in accordance with local, state, and federal standards.  Our drivers must practice safe defensive driving techniques, be knowledgeable of the area, provide guests with schedule/route information, assist disabled guests on and off the bus, and complete reports of all accidents, damage, or incidents of vandalism.  Our bus drivers will also be assigned to bus wash duties as part of their normal working shift.
