Tbilisi’s Mayor, Kakha Kaladze, has announced that the Tbilisi Transport Company is opening up 400 job vacancies for bus drivers. During a municipality government meeting, Mayor Kaladze revealed that these vacancies are for drivers of 8, 10, and 12-meter buses, while the current drivers will be transitioned to operating 18-meter buses.
Mayor Kaladze further explained that the city has already acquired 160 units of 18-meter buses, currently in production, which are set to be introduced on various routes in 2024. In anticipation of this, the Tbilisi Transport Company has initiated a program to retrain existing drivers to obtain the E category license required for operating these larger buses. Consequently, there is a need to fill the vacancies for drivers of smaller buses (8, 10, and 12 meters).
The Mayor said that the official salary for these bus driver positions ranges from 2,500 to 3,000 GEL. Those interested in securing employment should apply to the Tbilisi Transport Company. After completing the requisite interviews and internships, candidates, regardless of gender, will have the opportunity to become an M3 category bus driver. These 400 vacancies present a promising employment opportunity for individuals in Tbilisi.
