Bus Driver Trainees take part in a rigorous training program designed to produce consistently safe, reliable, and professional bus drivers. Upon successful completion of the training program, trainees become full-fledged bus drivers at OCCT.

Applicants must:

  • Possess at least ONE YEAR of active, licensed U.S. driving experience
  • Possess a CLEAN license (0 active points or violations)
  • Meet Department of Transportation (DOT) mental and physical requirements
    • Trainees accepted into the training program will receive a medical and drug screening at UHS Occupational Medicine, at the Company's expense
  • Intend to remain at least a part-time student at Binghamton University for at least one year 

Program Overview 
The OCCT Training Program is a fast-paced program designed to produce safe, reliable, responsible, knowledgeable, and competent bus drivers. The program offers students an opportunity to earn a New York State Class B Commercial Drivers License. Not only will trainees earn this valuable license, they will also receive a small stipend upon successful completion of the program. 


Training Program
The training program is currently a five-week program. Trainees have three three-hour driving sessions a week and a one-hour classroom session. The times for these sessions are flexible and we try our best to accommodate individual obligations. We do, however, require a certain level of flexibility from trainees. The program is fast-paced with the New York State CDL Class B Road Test occurring after the fourth week of driving. While the program is demanding, it is meant to be challenging and fun. Most of our drivers look at training as a unique and rewarding experience. All training and classroom sessions are mandatory. No exceptions.  

Note: Training does not end after the road test! Hiring decisions are based upon successful completion of our entire program.

Acceptance into the Training Program
If you have met the minimum requirements listed above, you must complete the following to apply:

  • A completed application must be submitted to the OCCT Office, UUW-B20 (below University Bookstore) or via email to the Training Coordinator. 
  • If you possess a non-New York license, you must submit a driver history abstract with your application. You will be responsible for any incurred fees. 
  • Complete an interview. These will be scheduled by the Training Coordinator upon receipt of the application. 

Note: Acceptance into the Training Program does not guarantee hiring by OCCT!

Hiring Policy
OCCT is an Equal Opportunity Employer and conforms to all federal, state, and Binghamton University hiring guidelines. Hiring decisions are based upon:

  • Proven driving ability as shown through the Training Program 
  • Reliability and commitment to all OCCT rules and regulations. 
  • Passing the NYS CDL Class B Road Test 

Note: All hiring decisions are made by a committee of trainers, coordinators, and the Director. The Training Coordinator reserves the right to dismiss anyone from the program for violations of OCCT guidelines, unsafe or reckless behavior, or other transgressions deemed to be inappropriate. Upon being hired, drivers are required to participate in several unpaid programs like defensive driving. Drivers are also subject to random drug-testing.

BUS MONITOR - ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS
Bus Monitors enforce OCCT policies on our buses during Friday and Saturday nights. This position requires availability on Friday and/or Saturday nights.

Applicants must:

  • Be available on Friday and/or Saturday nights between the hours of 10 p.m. and 4 a.m.
  • Be capable of remaining stern and impartial with their peers
  • Intend to remain at least a part-time student at Binghamton University for at least one year
Job Description
OCCT Monitors assist the Driver in maintaining a safe environment on the bus during weekend Late Nite service. OCCT prohibits passengers from standing on the buses past midnight for safety reasons, and the Monitor is responsible for enforcing this policy. Part of this requirement involves maintaining a count of passengers on the bus, and turning away any passengers that would exceed the safe capacity of the bus. Monitors also have the option of working at the University Union and maintaining the crowd and OCCT barricades at that location, and are often assisted by University Police. Under no circumstances are Monitors permitted to make physical contact with any passengers.

Monitor Training
Monitors hired by OCCT will take part in a brief workshop intended to familiarize them with OCCT policies and procedures, and how to deal with the variety of situations they may encounter while performing their job.
