To operate our services requires a whole range of jobs including:
Passenger Assistants:- When available passenger assistants are an invaluable help to our drivers. Travelling with the bus they can help locate each address, help the passengers on and off, deal with fares etc. All this reduces the time the driver would spend and generally saves a great deal of time for both the outgoing and return journeys.
Office Staff:- Everything to help our office run and grow efficiently. Whatever your skills from just taking calls to planning our trips, from simple filing to meeting up with and dispatching our drivers having assisted to get the bus through its daily safety check, we could really use you.
