Bus drivers are required to obtain a specialized license to operate a bus. They also typically are expected to complete training sessions in a classroom before acquiring their license. General health, especially vision, are essential, so bus drivers may need to periodically undergo medical examinations. In many organizations, especially for school bus drivers, they may also need to submit a clean background check and drug test before they are hired.
The duties of a bus driver vary based on what type of bus they are driving. School bus drivers may have a morning and afternoon shift in which they cover a designated route to pick up children for school. These bus drivers may also perform field trip duties, picking up a class of students and driving them to and from a field trip location.
Public transit bus drivers also have a designated route, but it typically is much larger. There are many stops on a bus driver’s route, and they must look out for passengers waiting at bus stops. They are required to collect tickets from passengers and answer questions about the bus route. (Copyright 2018 PayScale.com)
