Transfer and join GVB as a bus driver

Are you an experienced bus driver? Do you have a Category D driving licence and at least two years of experience driving a bus for a city or regional public transport company or coach service? Do you like the dynamism of Amsterdam and would you like to take on the challenge of helping passengers go places pleasantly, safely and on time? Join GVB as a bus driver!

  • Enjoy competitive starting salaries along with generous benefits and allowances.
  • Work flexible, pre-scheduled shifts with a maximum length of 8 hours and 45 minutes.
  • Discover Amsterdam’s unique buzz.

Diverse and full of energy

Imagine: in your rear-view mirror, you spot some former school friends who have not seen each other for years. You say ‘good luck’ to a student on the bus cramming for an exam. You might even sing along in the evening with people coming back from a concert at Ziggo Dome. Every day and every trip is different. THIS is Amsterdam. Better than that: THIS is your new job. You are a GVB bus driver now! As a bus driver, you will meet all kinds of people all day, every day. Tourists, commuters, students, people enjoying a day out from various backgrounds and different age groups hop on the bus. Everyone making their way to their own destination. You will help them get there in a friendly and welcoming professional way, and with your own personal touch.

A bus driver is never alone

Though you may be the only GVB employee on the bus, you're always supported by the larger GVB team. One of our bus drivers even calls it the “GVB Village”. A place where people know each other’s name. Think: traffic control, team management, planners and of course colleagues on the vehicles. You meet your colleagues on the road and during breaks at GVB destinations. We’re proud of GVB’s community spirit. Working together is the only way to build towards an accessible Amsterdam.

What you bring

You have a great sense of responsibility and stay strong in the face of stress. Other requirements:

  • You have a Category D driving licence.
  • You have at least two years of experience as a bus driver.
  • You are 1.65 to 2 metres tall.
  • You have a secondary vocational school level 3 or higher.
  • You speak English well, have good reading comprehension skills in English and want to learn Dutch. We provide Dutch classes during your training course.
  • You are eligible for a certificate of good conduct (in Dutch: ‘Verklaring Omtrent Gedrag’ or VOG).
  • You can see colours and signals extremely well (possibly with glasses or lenses).

What we offer

  • Clear schedule: When you work for GVB, you know your work schedule well in advance. A shift lasts up to 8 hours and 45 minutes. Clear schedules allow you to manage your work-life balance.
  • Travel costs compensation and free GVB public transport: When you work at GVB, you travel for free on our public transport vehicles, even in your free time.
  • Excellent pay: Your salary is determined based on your experience. You can earn up to €3,283 a month based on a 36-hour week. There’s an allowance for irregular hours. You will also receive 8% holiday pay and a thirteenth month salary.
  • Contribute to Amsterdam: Amsterdam traffic is increasingly busy. Public transport is essential for ensuring Amsterdam’s accessibility. As a bus driver, you contribute daily towards a sustainable and accessible city for everyone.

Are you interested but would you like to meet us first or maybe even join us during a shift? You can! You are welcome to talk to one of the GVB bus drivers, instructors, recruiters or a (team) manager at any of our sites. Book an appointment today!
