Work Where You Live - Drive Your Community 

Our transit operators are community ambassadors who love to help. You’ll get to know them on a first-name basis if you’re a frequent rider. They’re often a guide for visitors or new transit users, helping them understand how to get from point A to B. And they’re a lifeline for customers who use our ACCESS service.

At Kitsap Transit, we’re hiring transit operators. As we prepare to expand bus service in the coming years and face a wave of retirements, we’re going to need more drivers. We want our new drivers to be successful and understand the demands of the job, and here you’ll learn more about the job’s wages, benefits, and work requirements.
