Greenlink bus drivers help meet Greenville County residents’ day-to-day needs by transporting passengers to their jobs, medical appointments, the grocery store and other important errands. Drivers are responsible for following City, County, State and Federal laws; collecting bus fare; assisting disabled passengers as needed; monitoring vehicle operation and documenting any mechanical issues; staying alert to weather conditions and ensuring passenger safety.
Don’t worry! Greenlink now offers in-house training with the “Bus Operator in Training” position.
Applicants who don’t have a South Carolina Class B Commercial Driver's License (CDL) will undergo training at the beginning of the program and will be required to obtain their Commercial Learner's Permit (CLP) within 2 weeks of hire and their CDL within 8 weeks.
There’s no fee to participate in the CDL training, which would normally cost you over $2,000. And, while you’re actively enrolled in our Bus Operator in Training program, you’ll earn $16 an hour.
The program includes classroom and hands-on training and provides the skills and knowledge required to operate a public transit bus safely and independently. Trainees who complete the program will be promoted to Bus Operator.
