As most everyone who is familiar with the RIDE Solutions program is aware, one of the main functions we are involved with is matching employees who desire to carpool together to save money or because they do not have access to reliable transportation with which to get to work. Another function we are involved with is promoting public transit in the areas we serve, both to make commuters and others aware of the multiple modes of transportation available, as well as to promote the transit services themselves.
That said, Danville Transit is an indispensable resource for the City of Danville, as it provides fixed-route service to many areas of the city, as well as Reserve-A-Ride and Handivan service to all areas of the city. To promote and enhance this service, as well as to launch possible, new, expanded service later in the year to Pittsylvania and Halifax counties, Danville Transit is hiring transit drivers. Please see the ad below for a detailed transit driver job description:
