The Route to Success Bus Experience Day will be held at Rochdale Football Club’s Crown Oil Arena between 10am and 4pm on Wednesday, July 26.
People who sign up for the day will have the chance to drive a bus under the guidance of a qualified trainer, take part in a virtual reality session and learn more about the new Route to Success scheme.
Delivered on behalf of Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) as part of the city-region’s Skills Bootcamps programme, Route to Success will create more than 100 new bus drivers to help protect services and routes across Greater Manchester region.
As well as obtaining a Passenger Carrying Vehicle licence through the course, those completing the programme will also be guaranteed a job interview with an operator.
Any individual aged over 19 and with a full UK driving licence can attend the engagement day and people can sign up here.
