About the Job

You’ll be responsible for providing tremendous service and support to our customers, drivers and partners. You’ll help us operate reservations according to our scheduling software, communicate with customers during their reservation to make sure we appropriately understand their expectations, communicate with our salesperson to make sure those expectations are agreed upon.

About You

The Detroit Bus Company is a social benefit company focused on caring for people, planet, and then profit in that order. For every ride sold we donate a ride to a Detroit student in need. This mission should resonate with you.


We’re looking for some great drivers who love helping people, so you should enjoy making complicated situations simple and painless. This means being a great problem-solver with the ability to process and resolve issues quickly. You should be a stellar communicator, even when you have to communicate less-than-stellar news. You should have highly tuned senses of compassion and empathy and a drive to constantly help others.


We have well-developed systems to make sure everything runs smoothly and work isn’t done twice. But, your voice matters to us. We make change from fresh perspectives and appreciate new viewpoints, so you should feel comfortable speaking up about your values.


You love transporting people. You want to be part of our driver team for a while, and you’re excited to contribute to making The Detroit Bus Company the best service for connecting Detroit.

The Detroit Bus Company is committed to building an inclusive, supportive place for you to do the best and most rewarding work of your career.


About Our Pay and Benefits

We’re a small company so we all wear many hats, but we strive to offer a workplace that prioritizes excellent work-life balance with paid time off and paid holidays for full-time employees. We’ve designed our systems so that when your workday ends you’re able to leave work at work and go about your personal life fully. This means there are rarely any after-work calls or emails.
