Bus Driver Jobs

Bus Driver Jobs Overview

Bus driving jobs are found in both metropolitan and rural locations where they are frequently hired by transit authorities and school districts for daily commutes. Drivers also work for a variety of travel and transportation companies to take passengers to popular destinations across the country. Driving a bus requires advanced driving skills as well as the ability to follow directions, communicate with passengers and dispatchers, and keep up with maintenance and other important logs. The working hours for Bus Driver jobs can be either a highly scheduled routine or more flexible, depending on the position.

Bus Drivers spend the majority of their working hours driving or sitting behind the wheel of their vehicle. In some positions, moving baggage and assisting passengers may also be a part of the job. Many schedules worked by Bus Drivers include early mornings, late nights and weekend work.

Bus Driver Education Requirements and Qualifications

Most employers are looking for applicants who have a high school diploma or equivalent. A Bus Driver must have a valid driver's license and safe driving record. In addition, most drivers are required to have their commercial driver's license and complete a required training program. For school Bus Drivers, a criminal background check may be necessary. Municipal and travel-oriented jobs may be more flexible.
