The usual term is "Operator" - "Attendant" is also used, I believe.

Usher and bellboy apply to other functions. I have not seen those terms applied to elevator operators.

Some Municipalities require a license for Elevator Operators.

I think the terms 'elevator attendant' and 'elevator operator' are both acceptable. By the way, if you are 'righting' a book and want to know what 'there' name is, you might consider using spell-check before submitting your manuscript to a publisher.
