PARTA’s General Manager Claudia Amrhein says that working for PARTA is one of the highest paying jobs offered on campus. PARTA is currently recruiting students to work as bus drivers for the fall semester. It is paid training $8.00 an hour and then the wage goes up after you get your CDL. Then there are even more opportunities. From that point on your hours driving and each semester you come back you can get a fifty-cent raise.
