Valley Transit, the public transportation service in the Fox Cities, is working to address a severe driver shortage by offering up to a $5,000 sign-on bonus for applicants who already possess a commercial drivers license.

For full-time positions, a $5,000 sign-on bonus will be provided to new hires, for part-time positions a $2,500 sign-on bonus will be offered. Applicants interested in receiving the sign-on bonus must already have a valid Class A or Class B CDL with a passenger endorsement and no air brake restriction.

“We need customer service-oriented drivers to continue providing the essential services that are connecting our community to jobs, resources, entertainment and, especially as we approach back-to-school season, educational institutions,” said Valley Transit general manager Ron McDonald. “We’ve are hoping this hiring bonus will help us quickly attract candidates that can hit the ground running as soon as possible.”

Those interested in becoming bus drivers are not required to have their CDL to apply but will need to be able to possess and maintain a Wisconsin Class B Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) with the passenger endorsement and a Federal Medical Card as a condition of employment.

Additional benefits of working for Valley Transit include working in a supportive and inclusive environment, use of state-of-the-art equipment, excellent retirement benefits and knowing you are doing impactful work in your community.

Several full and part-time bus driver positions need to be filled.
