Do you have what it takes to be an ACTION driver?

johnboy 11 November 2013

While their online personas may be rude, abusive, and staggeringly entitled, ACTION bus drivers in my recent experience have been rather nice.

Since the introduction of ACTION timetables to Google Maps I’ve been finding the buses actually useful, and the drivers have been great.

That said let us turn our attention to TAMS recruitment drive:

ACTION is putting the call out for new drivers, with a recruitment drive opening this Thursday, 14 November 2013.

“I am pleased to welcome ACTION’s seven new recruits who joined the team in October, and would like to invite other enthusiastic individuals to apply for a spot on the bus driver team, with part-time positions available at the Belconnen and Tuggeranong depots,” said Craig Basher, Operational Capability Manager, ACTION.

“When recruiting, ACTION look for people with a high level of health and fitness who possess strong customer service skills, have a full driver’s licence with a safe driving record, are over 20 years of age, and are available to work within a seven-day week including night shifts.

“I encourage anyone interested in helping provide Canberra with a safe, effective and accessible passenger transport service to come along to an upcoming bus driver information evening.

“The information session will be held at 7 pm on Wednesday, 13 November 2013, and will provide attendees with an overview of the positions, the bus driver recruitment process, training requirements and working conditions.”

Visit or call the ACTION information line on 13 17 10 for further information.
