Bus driver shortage in Westmoreland County causing trouble for riders – WPXI

Alan Blahovec says they’re not quite up to where they were before the pandemic — but even with the high demand, they just can’t fill the seats or the services.

“Our pay rate is $14.33 an hour right now and we are offering a $750 signing bonus. We offer health benefits, a retirement plan, everything we can.”

Westmoreland Transit is actually holding open interviews on Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. at its office on Bell Way in Greensburg, in hopes of filling that shortage and restoring those routes.
