DART will be holding a job fair at the Iowa State Fairgrounds Middway on November 2nd from 2 - 6 p.m. and November 3rd from 7:30 a.m. - 2 p.m. This fair will allow potential drivers to get to handle a 40-foot-long passenger bus and smaller paratransit bus around a closed course. Job-seekers will have the opportunity to get the feel of driving a bus and connect with DART Human Resources about beginning a new career.
Opportunities at DART
Facing an industry shortage, DART is looking to fill roughly 35 drivers roles in both fixed route and paratransit services. Applicants should be over the age of 21-years-old and have a valid driver's license. Bring your license to the event. A person does not need to hold a commercial driver's license (CDL) to qualify for employment, as paid training for their CDL is available to those who are hired.
DART is offering a $3000 sign-on bonus for new driver's that already have their CDL and a $2000 bonus for those looking to gain one while employed with DART. This bonus will be paid out over one year of employment based on hours worked.
