L-R: Metro Bus Operators Ryan Mcpherson, Andrew Wiggins, and Mark Hayes.

Bus Operator Ryan says he was attracted to Metro because he was sick of a 9-5 office job and wanted to do something which got him out and about all day. Prior to joining us at Metro, Andrew spent 25 years as a baker and says he wanted a new challenge in life. Similarly, Mark was interested in new horizons after teaching for 26 years. Mark says he wanted to stay in a role where he could meet and talk to people and driving a bus fit the bill!

“Absolutely love it, especially like meeting new people everyday” – Ryan

“[Metro is] very well run with plenty of communication. [I] love it; when I’m doing a half shift I just want to stay out there!” – Andrew

“[Metro is] very friendly and supportive, with a great bunch of people to work with” – Mark

Who are we looking for?

Due to our drive towards continual improvement and in order to meet operational demand, we welcome six to eight intakes of new bus operators each year, as well as advertising diverse opportunities for administration, operations, trades and customer service roles.

We are proud to offer successful applicants an extensive training package which includes all qualifications required to drive a bus in Tasmania, including Heavy Rigid and Public Passenger Vehicle licences.

All vacancies and bus operator intakes will be advertised online here, however we accept expressions of interest for bus operators at any time, so if you are passionate about providing great customer service as part of an iconic Tasmanian company, get in touch!
