Bus Drivers

Tahoe Truckee Area Regional Transit (TART) provides safe and direct means of transportation service for North Lake Tahoe residents and visitors. TART is committed to providing comprehensive and reliable transit service to its passengers along with a comfortable and pleasant ride in and around the beautiful Lake Tahoe area.

This is the entry level class in the Bus Driver series. This class is distinguished from the journey by the performance of the more routine tasks and duties assigned to positions within this series. Employees at this level are not expected to perform with the same independence of direction and judgment on matters allocated to the journey level. Since this class is typically used as a training class, employees may have only limited or no directly related work experience. Employees work under immediate supervision while learning job tasks.
