Snoqualmie Valley Transportation is looking for three bus drivers to help provide transportation services.

Applicants only need a valid driver’s license, a clean driving record for the last five years, have no arrests on their record, and pass a drug test. No special license is required. Drivers are encouraged to apply immediately, as the unexpected losses of drivers could result in service cancellations.

Paid training is provided and the starting rate is $16.26 an hour. The training process takes several weeks. All shifts are Monday through Friday at more than 30 hours a week. After 90 days, drivers qualify for medical and dental benefits.

Applicants can complete a form at and drop it off at Snoqualmie Valley Transportation’s office at 1308 Boalch Ave NW, North Bend, or send it by email to It can also be mailed to Snoqualmie Valley Transportation, P.O. Box 805, North Bend, WA 98045.
