All Unitrans Transit Drivers (official job title) are required to carry a Commerical Driver's Licence (Class B, CDL), Verification of Transit Training (VTT) card, and Medical Certification card (which must be renewed every 2 years).
You must be a current undergraduate student to drive for Unitrans.

Drivers maintain "Safe Driving Hours", which are the number of hours operating a Unitrans service vehicle without getting into an accident.
* At 250 safe hours, drivers are eligible for Out-of-Town Charter (OTC) training, where they learn how to operate a vehicle for service outside of Davis.
* At 500 safe hours, drivers are eligible to drive the double deckers.
