London-based Tower Transit announced its employment package and Singaporean bus drivers can earn a basic salary of $1,865 monthly. After additional allowances based on performance, safe driving and overtime, they can earn up to $3,000 every month.
Unlike SBS and SMRT drivers, Tower Transit drivers will not be required to do refueling, cleaning or parking duties. They will enjoy free travel on all public transportation and get 26 weeks of maternity leave for female employees.
Tower Transit will start operating 26 routes in the western part of the island from the second quarter of 2016. Singapore’s third transport operator is looking to hire 750 bus captains for their operations.
