Position Summary

PLEASE READ THE BULLETIN THOROUGHLY AND CAREFULLY AS WE HAVE MADE SOME SIGNIFICANT CHANGES TO THE APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS & SELECTION PROCESS

Regina Transit is recruiting Bus Operators to become part of a pool of qualified operators who are trained and ready to step in to permanent operator positions as the positions become open and available.

City of Regina Bus Operators are skilled professional drivers who provide excellent customer service while transporting citizens in a safe and courteous manner. Bus Operators are expected to follow all applicable rules and regulations, assist passengers with transit information, transport passengers on schedule, ensure correct fees are deposited, and secure passengers as required. Customer Service and Safety are of the utmost importance; therefore, City of Regina Bus Operators demonstrate a considerable degree of courtesy and tact when dealing with the public as well as initiative, sound judgement and superior skill in operating a bus in a wide range of weather and road conditions.

Hours of Work - Regina Transit operates seven (7) days per week; therefore Operator shifts can vary substantially. Working hours can include split shifts, weekends, early mornings and late nights. Because this is a unionized environment, shift scheduling and vacation requests are based on seniority.

PLEASE READ BELOW INFORMATION CAREFULLY
