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.
