Are you looking to steer your career in a new direction? Metro Transit plans to hire up to 100 part-time bus drivers in the Twin Cities as it prepares to expand light-rail service next year, the Star Tribune reports.

Some current bus drivers will become light-rail train operators when the new Central Corridor, or Green Line, is up and running, according to Fox 9.

WCCO says all newly hired bus drivers will be guaranteed 30 hours per week and earn at least $17.27 an hour, plus benefits.

No previous experience is required, but applicants should have a good driving record and customer service skills.Click here, to apply on online.
