There is a duty rota for school and holiday periods for employees in the driving service. This gives you an early overview of days off and working days. The shifts vary in length, the shortest being around 5 hours and the longest just under 10 hours. There are also split shifts, where you are on the road in the morning and at lunchtime and have time off in between.

The duty roster for the following week is published on Wednesdays and includes holiday replacements and any other absences. If a private appointment should come up at short notice, there is the possibility - if this is operationally possible - to swap a shift.

You have 32 days holiday per year. You must submit your holiday application for the following year in the period from October to December.

You will be travelling on different routes during your shift. This means you will be familiar with different routes and have variety. The buses are allocated to different transport services. This means that you may drive a different bus every day.

You start your shift at the depot to which you are assigned. You register with the control centre via your duty telephone. You can see which vehicle is assigned to your shift on the vehicle overview displayed. Together with the vehicle key, you take the service folder with you. This contains all the information from the start of your shift to breaks and the end of your shift, as well as all journeys with details of the routes, departure times and start and end points.

Before you set off with the bus, a vehicle check is required. This includes a visual check for possible damage to the vehicle, a light test, a check of the interior for cleanliness, lost property and defects, adjustment of the driver's workplace (cockpit, mirrors, etc.) and logging on to the on-board computer with your personnel number and personal PIN number.

During your work as a driver, your tasks will include paying attention to road traffic, selling tickets, checking tickets and advising and supporting customers.

During on-call times, you check the passenger compartment for cleanliness and lost property.

When your shift is over, you return to the bus depot. There, the vehicle is checked again for damage and lost property. You then hand back the key and the service folder. If you have any lost property with you, print out an accompanying note and deposit both at the collection point.

The weekly working time is 39 hours. You will work in shifts, including weekends and public holidays. We pay all overtime with a supplement. There are also bonuses for working at night, on Sundays and public holidays and a bonus for eco-driving.

There are different rhythms of days off and working days. This means you also have weekends off at regular intervals.

We will help you with the application for a bus driving licence, don't worry.

We pay according to the AVN collective labour agreement, which is € 2,727.97 gross per month. The salary increases with each pay scale level and increasing length of service.
