Are there opportunities for jobseekers in the bus industry?

With an extra million people expected to live in Sydney over the next 10 years, the NSW Government is requiring private bus companies to provide an increasing number of extra services to keep up with demand.

Private bus and coach companies across NSW are looking for motivated people with good customer service skills and a positive attitude to join their team and help deliver services for customers.

Most bus companies in the Greater Sydney area offer full time, part time and casual positions, with some also offering casual work on weekends (for rail replacement services and special events). With bus depots located throughout NSW, particularly in Greater Sydney, working for a private bus or coach company allows applicants to work close to home.
