Reviews about Pay & Benefits for Bus Driver in MBTA

You have no real guidance from supervisors here, so finding a co worse who is friendly and knowledgeable is essential but not easy

Bus ops is a demanding job and you have to be a strong person to be dealing with the constant public execution from the passengers and then the lack of support and appreciation from management who most have started out in your position and have first hand experience of what it’s like for us. However when they reach these higher positions the operators become targets and it’s hurtful because we are on the front lines and we deserve support


Pension and good pay at max


Health care and taxes are expensive

I rate it this low because management doesn't Respect the Workers and are not Supportive of them

Don't get me wrong I like working for the MBTA because it had provide me with many great things in life, like some of the Benefits it provides but at the same time it can get better with a safer job environment, Protection and many more Opportunities in different positions without favoritism.
