Driving a school bus is a fulfilling employment opportunity. If you have an interest in working with children and youth, this may be the right job for you. Approximately 18,000 school buses travel two million kilometers in Ontario every school day. These trained professionals provide 300 million safe rides during the school year. You could play an important role in student transportation.
School bus drivers enjoy regular part-time employment suiting the needs of many families, retired persons and the self-employed. School bus companies are responsible for the hiring and training process. Professional training is often provided by the school bus company at little cost to drivers. Training includes safe driving techniques, bus evacuation, student management, and other specialized training dependent on the client’s needs.
An employment application must be submitted directly to a local school bus company. For a list of school bus companies in your area, it is suggested that you research the internet, check your local yellow pages, or visit the following websites for additional information:
