The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) and it’s fixed route operating partner Keolis North America is dealing with a shortage of bus drivers and to that end is holding a hiring fair on Friday, Jan. 21.

The RTC has had to adjust many route times to deal with the shortage of drivers and riders have reported longer wait times for buses recently.
