Hop on board, join the team at Metro Tasmania
Metro Tasmania has been connecting locals and visitors for over 60 years. We pride ourselves on our values of safety, team work, respect and improvement in order to deliver safe and reliable transport services to our fellow Tasmanians. As we embark on a transformational journey Metro is working on becoming a truly customer centric organisation Metro is looking for Bus Operators who align themselves to our vision and values.
We are currently recruiting Bus Operators for our Hobart, Launceston and Burnie depots. These positions ideally suit people who have exceptional customer service skills, physical capability and mental aptitude necessary to safely and reliably drive a heavy passenger vehicle, and a track record of working well with others in a team environment. We welcome and encourage applications from all community groups and backgrounds including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, LGBTIQA+, people with disabilities and other diversity groups.
Our ideal applicant:
- Has a good driving history.
- Will enjoy, and be capable of, driving a heavy passenger vehicle on a daily basis*.
- Has a passion for customer service and safely transporting customers to their destinations.
- Is willing to work shifts required of the position.
- Works well both independently and as part of a team.

It’s not necessary that you already have a heavy vehicle license – we can train people who have the necessary capability and mindset. You must have held a full Australian standard driving licence for at least two years, and have the commitment and ability to achieve a high standard of heavy vehicle driving.
You will also need to have or be able to obtain Working with Children Registration and a current National Police Certificate obtained from Tasmania Police. (https://www.police.tas.gov.au/services-online/police-history-record-checks/)
Metro employees must also comply with our Drug and Alcohol Management Procedure, which includes passing an initial pre-employment test and ongoing random tests throughout employment.

Accordingly, anyone interested in a position is strongly encouraged to apply.
