Via’s Hiring HOP Drivers

Drive with the HOP

An older black man leans playfully out the open door of a HOP bus. He is smiling toward the camera and giving a thumb's up.The HOP is a high-frequency circulator shuttle connecting the primary retail, social, and educational centers in Boulder. It is open to the general public and operated by Via under contract with the City of Boulder, CU-Boulder, and the RTD. Via has been operating the HOP since it began in 1994.

Drivers play music as they drive the bright orange buses and take in the gorgeous view of the Flatirons.

You’ll enjoy driving for the HOP if you like a fixed, predictable route every day and a fun environment.
