Culture
Each one of our 87,000 employees worldwide must live the mantra, If you cannot do it safely—don’t do it. Every person ultimately has a bearing on whether or not people of all ages are being transported safely, so individuals that tend to succeed with our organization take this mantle of trust very seriously. We have a dynamic organization constantly growing which is why it’s critical that people considering our organization find change exciting. We are constantly evolving at FirstGroup America, and we need professionals that enjoy riding a very steep growth curve and are able to navigate the challenges that naturally follow.

Our aim is to transform travel by providing public transport services that are safe, reliable, high quality, personal and accessible. We aim to be the employer of choice in the transportation industry because employees are our number one asset and key to our success. We do this by making significant investment in the training and development of all our employees across the Group.

We have had a dynamic past, are enjoying an exciting present, and are looking forward to a future that holds a tremendous amount of opportunity.
