Speaking of the Red Line South project...

There is a need at least for more bus drivers to operate the various shuttle bus routes in addition to other opportunities below forwarded from the Greater Chatham Alliance

CTA Red Line South Job Opportunities

Construction Job Opportunities––Check it OUT NOW!

CTA will work with the selected Red Line South general contractor and its subcontractors to hire trades people and apprentices in carpentry, electrical, ironwork, laborers, operators, plumbers and other areas.

In addition to the DBE goal, CTA will work with the general contractor to hire Disadvantaged Workers.

Individuals must qualify via guidelines under the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) as "Disadvantaged Workers," which typically includes, but is not limited to:

1. Those who meet income specific guidelines

2. Who've been laid-off, terminated or self-employed

Interested individuals will be encouraged to visit a one-stop WIA Workforce Center.

Individuals who qualify will be screened and trained, if needed, by Dawson Technical Institute, a division of Kennedy-King College.

Following their training, potential apprentices will be eligible to be hired by the contractor on the project.

For more information about the Disadvantaged Worker Program or your eligibility, please visit the:

Mid-South Workforce Center (MSWC)
4314 S. Cottage Grove, Chicago, Illinois
Contact MSWC at 773.538.5627 TTY: 773-538-8260.

New CTA Bus Driver Positions

As part of CTA's operations' needs, 150-200 new bus operator positions will be created to help serve our customers' needs during the five-month construction period, specifically to operate bus shuttles.

These jobs are permanent and will replace positions that become available over time, even after the construction project is over.

It's a great time to join the CTA team! For more information about these and other employment opportunities at CTA.
