Great bus drivers, though, also have relevant personal attributes that help them on the road (again, no pun intended) to success. Relax, though—if you don’t yet possess these qualities, we’ll help you cultivate them while you train.

Becoming A Bus Driver Takes Patience

From working with children to driving on slick roads to studying for your class B CDL, working for student transportation services does require a fair deal of patience. But good things come to those who learn to wait!
