Come and Try Day – Saturday 26 October 2019

Come and try your hand at driving a bus!

Canberra’s new integrated public transport network is growing, and this is your opportunity to try your hand at driving a bus which may open the door to a new career.

Does working with people in our community interest you? Attending the come and try day will give you the opportunity to get behind the wheel and get a feel for what it may be like.

Under the instruction of Transport Canberra Trainers/Assessors, attendees will be guided through the operations of the bus followed by the opportunity to drive around the 2.5km track which will give some insight into driving a bus at a relatively high speed.

A number of existing Transport Canberra operational staff will be in attendance to provide information and answer any questions relating to driving and working for Transport Canberra.

The day will be held across three sessions (8:30am – 10:30am, 11.30am - 1.30pm or 2.00pm – 4.00pm) at the Sutton Road Training Centre, 441 Sutton Rd Majura ACT. Each session has a maximum of 40 attendees, register your interest early to avoid disappointment.

To Register for the Come and Try day

Each session has a maximum of 50 attendees. Participants  will require a current, full C Class Driver's Licence or above, to participate in driving the buses and agree to the Come and Try Day participant acknowledgement.
