  • Hit the road with your skills by  becoming a Bus Driver!


Across Sydney, we operate an extensive bus network under the brands Transdev Queensland and Transdev John Holland Buses, which covers Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs and CBD.


Watch the videos below to meet other drivers or read on to learn about the training provided and career pathways available. 

Before you apply

  • Do you have a car license? You must have one to be eligible.

We accept candidates with a car licence only in Sydney and Perth. Our trainee bus driver program will assist you to gain the relevant license to drive a bus. Our extended program is designed to get you confident and competent behind the wheel with no previous bus driving experience. You are paid from Day 1 of the program. 

In Queensland, we welcome applications from people who hold an MR License or above.

The training is a mixture of classroom-based training and on the road practical training. You can expect to work closely with a trainer to develop your skill and expertise driving a bus! During the induction program you will also learn a lot about Transdev and Transdev John Holland’s customer centric processes. Last but not least,  there will be a huge focus on safety as this is at the core of everything we do. 


Once you complete your induction don’t expect your training to stop! Bus Drivers receive training at regular intervals to ensure your skills stay up to date!
