MAX is an Equal Opportunity Employer
We also have several opportunities for those wishing to contribute their time and talents to support their local transit system.
Drives bus, motor coach, or paratransit vehicles, including regular route operations, paratransit, charters, and/or private carriage. Communicates with and assists passengers. May collect fares, tickets, or passes. In paratransit operation, may assist riders to and from the door of their origin/destination and may assist passengers with up to two packages weighing no more than 50 pounds.
Mystery riders are unpaid volunteers who ride the bus with the purpose of evaluating system performance and quality of services against established Authority standards and criteria. Mystery riders are given Evaluation Forms and may be asked to randomly ride the bus routes, or assigned to evaluate certain routes.
Bus Buddies are unpaid volunteers who ride the bus with new passengers to help them understand and use the MAX’s fixed bus routes. Bus Buddies help passengers read bus schedules, plan trips, locate bus stops, and actually ride with new passengers until they feel confident to ride the bus alone. This program is for able-bodied persons.
Many of MAX’s bus shelters and bus stops are at locations where there is little or no snow removal in inclement weather. These locations also may require some trash pick-up and removal, or light cleaning of shelter surfaces. Adopt-A-Stop Volunteers clear snow and ice from their assigned bus stops and shelters on a regular basis or as needed.
