Transit operators are the most important people of BC Transit – they are our Bus Drivers! Can you imagine driving something as big as a bus? It takes months of training to become a Transit Operator!
Our Transit Operators do more than just drive the bus too.
● Check their bus to make sure it is safe for us to ride on
● Do their best to be on time to each bus stop in order to keep to their bus route and time schedule, which is important
● Answer questions and help riders find their way around
● Make sure everyone can get on the bus safely, including customers with accessibility needs or with a baby stroller
● Help with emergencies on the road when it is safe to do so
Transit Operators provide an important service to our communities. Did you know that if you ever get lost or feel scared, you could get on a bus and tell the bus driver? Bus drivers are community superheroes!
