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.
Interested in a part-time job as a school bus driver, but don't have the license? That is normal.
Mid-Placer offers classroom and behind-the-wheel instruction for qualified candidates usually several times per year.
