New $5,000 Signing Bonus Offered at Metro Transit for a Limited Time

[ST. LOUIS, MO/June 28, 2023] Bi-State Development is making a bold move in the next 90 days to address the critical workforce shortages it is currently facing at Metro Transit by offering a $5,000 signing bonus for essential transit positions. While the current $2,000 signing bonus for essential positions is helping add new operators for Metro Call-A-Ride, MetroBus, and MetroLink, the staffing shortage continues to impact transit service.

“New frontline workers along with our valued current team members are absolutely necessary to reliably move the St. Louis region. In fact, right now we are working on more contract enhancements for our team members represented through collective bargaining contract negotiations with ATU Local 788 and those enhancement offers will be distributed to our union-represented team members in the very near future,” said Taulby Roach, President and CEO of Bi-State Development.

Individuals who are looking to change careers and want to join an organization with great benefits and good salaries with ample overtime opportunities can apply online at

The special $5,000 signing bonus is available for qualifying new Metro Call-A-Ride operators, MetroBus operators, MetroLink operators, mechanics, and MetroLink electricians.

Bi-State Development operates the Metro Transit system in the City of St. Louis and in St. Louis County in Missouri and in St. Clair County in Illinois.
