Routed Operators

Part-Time and Full-Time Options Available

What is this job really like?

Kitsap Transit's peak ridership is during commute hours. As a result, split shifts are a part of the job and can vary daily, especially for new operators. Routed Operations runs from approximately 3:30am – 10:30pm.

Mike Tallent, Routed Operator
“I work from 4:25 AM to 8:20 AM, then 1:30 PM to 7:15 PM. I still get home before 8 PM, and I have at least 9 hours in between shifts to do whatever I want. It’s so easy. It’s not hard. If you love to drive, this job is for you.”
