Citilink reduces route due to driver shortage

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (ADAMS) – Citilink says they are reducing bus service on route 4 starting on Monday.
It will be temporary but they blame a driver shortage on slow hiring problems as well as drivers not showing up, along with recent retirements.

Route 4 runs the Wells/Ludwig and Parkview areas. It will operate every 60 minutes instead of every 30-minutes starting on Monday, July 26.

Citilink is hoping to hire new drivers and put out the push on social media.
According to a Facebook post, the starting pay is $16.61 an hour for new drivers.

Candidates must be able to pass a background check and drug screening, have a safe driving record. They also say they are looking for people who are excellent at providing customer service. You do not need a commercial driver’s license. Citilink provides that training.

Applicants may apply on or in person at the Citilink office at 801 Leesburg Road, Fort Wayne.

Schedule information is available by calling Citilink customer service at 260-432-4546, or online.
