AMTRAN offers a variety of part and full-time employment opportunities in several different departments. Specific job opportunities are normally advertised on an as-needed basis in local newspapers, such as the Altoona Mirror, as well as national transit-related publications, such as Passenger Transport and online. AMTRAN also keeps a "rolling" 6-month file of current applications and resumes. Job classifications are listed below.

AMTRAN Hires Good Drivers (apply in person or online)

Most of AMTRAN’s employment opportunities are as bus drivers. Some of our drivers only stay at Amtran for a few years but most stick with us until they retire.

Our bus drivers start part-time at $19.56 per hour gradually rising to $24.45 per hour after 2 years. Drivers can move up to full-time positions with benefits as vacancies allow - sometimes in 6 months, sometimes 2 years or more.

To apply, you must be at least 23 years old (although we also hire retirees). Young or old, you must have a good driving record. A Commercial Driver’s License is preferred but not required. We begin with 4-5 weeks of paid training.

Stop by in person to fill out an application. Our offices are at 3301 Fifth Avenue in Altoona next to Mansion Park. Our hours are 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Use the entrance under the awning.

If you’re not in the area, please use our online application.
