Open Day

When are they happening?

Depot Open Days happen at selected depots around Sydney.

At an Open Day you will join us for an information session, a tour of the Depot and a fast tracked recruitment option.

Registering your interest will place you on our contact list and as Open Days are scheduled we will contact people to attend an Open Day.

What to expect on the day

Meet and Greet

Come along and get insight into the life of a bus driver. Find out more about the role and speak to State Transit staff.

Get in the fast lane to becoming a bus driver

If you like what you hear, our friendly recruitment staff will be there to help get your application underway.

This involves an online application, a series of mini assessments and an interview to ensure that this is the right job for you.

You can get this online or by visiting a NSW Service Centre in person (charges apply). This needs to have been completed within the last 4 weeks before you apply.

This only applies if you’re already a qualified bus driver or private hire vehicle driver.
