Why Be a School Bus Driver?


Permanent drivers are promoted from the substitute roster.  So the way to get started with Mid-Placer is as a substitute driver.

Get your foot in the door and be ready for permanent, 10-month work when the opportunity comes along.

Drivers work the school year and follow the schedules of the schools they serve.

In addition to Home-to-School routes, some drivers like to take Activity Trips such as school sports, 6th grade camp, and field trips to museums and the State Capital.
