If you are getting a job driving a school bus with a school district they will put you through classes that will help you with obtaining your class B CDL, you will also your school bus endorsement, passenger endorsement and air brakes endorsement. Good luck with everything
Driving a school bus is much more than it looks like. Not only do you need to know the bus inside and out, you need to understand air brakes. Each day, Morning and afternoon, you do a pre- trip on your bus to make sure everything you are responsible for is working properly. Now you have to drive the bus, follow traffic rules and additional rules because you are in a bus. The students you are driving back and forth to school safely. Watch up to 78 students on your bus and you have to discipline through the rear view mirror. You develop a bus voice. In the beginning I loved it!!! I did not like when I could no longer discipline. When that was taken away, the job was a stressful chore!!!
You are literally responsible for every student on that bus from the time they get on, to making sure they get off a the proper stop. It’s a liability.
Driving a school bus can really be fun!!! It really depends on your capacity for volume and get picked at for everything you do from parents to the boss. I lasted ten years and still avert my eyes! LOL!
Hello, and to answer your question most of the comments you received are facts ! One thing you need to think about if this is the job for you ! Yes driving bus is a very big responsibility. You can never leave a child on the bus nor drop them off at the wrong location, and always insure you give the child to the correct parent! You must obtain your class B CDL with passenger endorsement. Always pre-trip your bus even after someone has driven the one you may drive you do not want to be responsible for any damages that you did not do to the bus . You must have patience when dealing with children as they come from all different back ground and homes ! You have to establish a relationship with the children it starts with the driver! Drive safe and follow all traffic regulations always use your mirrors when driving the bus those are your best friend when driving a school bus! Safety is always the top priority! it’s great to establish a relationship with the children, and parents as well ! Anymore questions please feel free to ask ! Wish you the best on your journey as a safe bus driver ! Good luck and blessings !
It's a reservation based version of Lyft/Uber that supports people with disabilities, limited movement, and other issues. As a tax-subsidized program of the Jacksonville Transit Authority's JTA Connection Plus program, it really gives back to the community with a flat $6 ride with a radius of 15 miles one way without stops.
As a driver, you get to pick your own rides in competition with others, and you can work an area or a time. With the tax subsidy , drivers are paid far more per ride than either Uber/Lyft, and clients never feel the pinch of the incentives.
There are some things to know upfront about the program. The priority is you cannot be late to an appointment to pickup someone. Some of the clients absolutely have to be where they are going and cannot rely on a casual Uber driver who might show up. It doesn't work like that. These clients may have special needs and as a driver you need to be patient and on time for them.
If you are late without a justifiable reason, your driving ability maybe suspended. Do it again and you might be out of the program. Drivers have the ability to cancel appointments up to 2 hours in advance, so other than mechanical issues or illness, there isn't any reason to be late.
My advice is not to mix Uber/Lyft rides with Uzurv because you never know where you maybe going with them in comparison to UZURV where the driver knows everything in advance.
With Uzurv in Jacksonville, FL I was making very good money in addition to Uber/Lyft. If I just stayed with UZURV for 5-6 days I was clearing 800-1200 week.
Working with UZURV itself was a good experience as they are in constant contact with their drivers. Uzurv360 is in other cities too, so I would encourage drivers to check this opportunity out too.
What jobs are available? How much is the pay? What’s my schedule? How soon can I start? All these and other questions will be answered during this interview opportunity. This is your time to Shine!
