Chief Minister Stanhope is celebrating the graduation of a whole eight (YES! EIGHT!) bus drivers from their arduous training course.
“I am pleased to announce the graduation of these new ACTION bus drivers,” Mr Stanhope said.
“We now have an additional seven males and one female joining our ACTION team as a result of the October 2010 recruitment drive.
“The new drivers began work in time for the start of the new school term and will be operating from both the Belconnen and Tuggeranong bus depots.”

During their training program, the new drivers were trained and tested in every aspect of bus operations including heavy vehicle defensive driving, customer service, route navigation, ticketing, assisting passengers with special needs, safety, security and emergency procedures.
The candidates had to possess strong customer service skills, have a full motor vehicle licence, be over 20 years of age and available to work within a seven-day week including night shifts.
His Chiefliness would like you to consider a life on the road.
Sadly the ACTION website says they’re not interested in new applicants?
