Thank you for your interest in working with ECU Transit! We are currently recruiting new operators to train over the Fall in preparation for the Spring 2018 semester.
Operating a commercial motor vehicle is a serious commitment; over 2 million passengers each year depend on us to carry them safely to their destinations. Any action or attitude which compromises safety is unacceptable. To support our dedication to safety, we are interested in hiring only those operators who demonstrate safe, responsible behaviors both on and off the clock while exhibiting excellent decision making skills in a highly dynamic environment.
Before you apply to drive with us, we want you to be aware of several key factors considered during the application process.
Once interviewed, if you are selected to continue with the hiring process, you may receive a conditional offer of employment. This offer is dependent upon the following items:

The training program takes approximately 80 hours to complete and focuses on developing safe driving habits critical to operating commercial vehicles. Upon successfully completing the exam and obtaining your license, you will move on to drive with passengers under the supervision of an experienced operator.

We realize this can seem pretty daunting for your average college student; your responsibilities to the people you carry are very important and are not to be taken lightly.

Join our team and discover the rewards that come with working alongside your fellow students while developing skills to last a lifetime. We get involved in everything from quiet evenings with performing arts shows to the excitement of football season. Whatever the occasion, ECU Transit is right there in the middle of it, helping every event to be a success.
