The Greater Dayton RTA is hosting an Interactive Hiring Event at UD Arena on August 17 from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Earn your CDL in as little as 4 weeks at no cost to you when you join the Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority (RTA). See if you have what it takes to drive a big bus at RTA’s Interactive Hiring Event on August 17 at the University of Dayton Arena from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.
While candidates must have a valid driver’s license to participate, a CDL is not required. In fact, the RTA will help new hires obtain their CDL while paying them at the same time. The RTA has a permanent, onsite training department with trainers who are dedicated to the success of each new hire as they work to earn their permit and CDL. RTA trainers are known to be some of the best in the business.
“I test people from all over the country and Ohio and when we get a call from RTA, we know we’re getting to work with the best,” Kreigh Spahr, president of Eagle CDL Testing in Medway, said. “We know that these people are coming in very well prepared.”
Prospective bus drivers will be offered the chance to get behind the wheel of the agency’s big buses and/or small non-CDL buses to get a feel for what it means to be a bus driver.
The RTA will conduct interviews from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. at UD Arena. After successfully completing the interview, RTA trainers will assist candidates with the test drive to ensure the ride goes smoothly. The test-driving portion will be cut off at 1 p.m., so we advise people to arrive earlier, rather than later, to ensure they get a chance to get behind the wheel.
