(DAYTON, OHIO)… The Greater Dayton RTA is hiring bus drivers, and will offer open interviews to immediately fill vacancies via a career fair on Thursday, Aug. 26, 2021, from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the Goodwill Easterseals Miami Valley building at 660 S. Main St., Dayton.

Drivers with Commercial Driver’s Licenses (CDL) licenses and those without are encouraged to attend. No commercial driving experience is necessary. The RTA’s training program will provide new hires with the essential skills needed to succeed on the job as a bus driver.

The event will kick-off with a short briefing at 10 a.m., where RTA staff will give applicants an overview of what driver positions entail. Following a short break, interested applicants will then be directed to rooms where interviews will occur.

Before attending the career fair, candidates are encouraged to first fill out an online application on the RTA’s career website at iriderta.org/careers. Candidates are also asked to bring a current resume, two forms of identification (including a driver’s license), and to arrive in interview-appropriate attire. For those not able to attend the career fair, you can still apply for open positions on RTA’s career website at iriderta.org/careers.  

The starting wage for RTA drivers with a CDL is $16.55 per hour, and the starting wage for drivers without a CDL is $14.48 per hour. More information about the open RTA positions can be found on the RTA career website. The RTA is an Equal Employment Opportunity Employer.
