Don’t Have a Commercial Driver’s License?
Don’t worry! Greenlink now offers in-house training with the “Bus Operator in Training” position.
Applicants who don’t have a South Carolina Class B Commercial Driver's License (CDL) will undergo training at the beginning of the program and will be required to obtain their Commercial Learner's Permit (CLP) within 2 weeks of hire and their CDL within 8 weeks.
There’s no fee to participate in the CDL training, which would normally cost you over $2,000. And, while you’re actively enrolled in our Bus Operator in Training program, you’ll earn $15 an hour.
The program includes classroom and hands-on training and provides the skills and knowledge required to operate a public transit bus safely and independently. Trainees who complete the program will be promoted to Bus Operator.
