Shuttle Bus Driver

Driving a shuttle bus is abundant with job opportunities. Over the years the use of shuttle buses has increased in many types of businesses and has created more demand for drivers. There are a few different requirements depending on the shuttle driving job you are searching for. When applying for a shuttle driver job you should absolutely check the job requirements to see if you are able to meet the criteria. In many circumstances the job may require that you have a valid commercial driver license (CDL); while other shuttle driver jobs do not require a CDL. Typically a CDL will be necessary when the passenger load exceeds a certain number, 15 passengers in many states. Although the specific job you are applying for may still request a CDL even though the passenger load never exceeds the maximum. Again thoroughly reviewing the job description and desired skill set should give a clear indication if a CDL will be needed.

When it comes to operating large vehicles or transporting passengers, you can expect a series of background criminal checks and a history of moving violation. In short, having a clear driving record will be an important aspect to obtain a position as a shuttle bus driver. In some cases the company you are applying for may have higher education listed as criteria for the driving position. Although in most companies, a high school diploma or the equivalent will be enough. Age may also be a factor in some companies who are looking for more experienced drivers. You may find some jobs in which 18 years of age will be old enough while others may have age minimums of 21 or even 25.

Not all but some companies will provide a training class before you begin your shuttle route. These classes may include behind the wheel driver instruction, understanding of local traffic laws, company policies and customer service training. When on your shuttle bus route you will be expected to be polite and courteous. You may need to assist passengers on and off the shuttle and that may require some physical strength. You are responsible for the safety of the passengers you are transporting as well as operating your vehicle to ensure the safety of those around you. Being able to make decisions and having a little patience to deal with weather, traffic or uncooperative passengers will also go a long way in the job. A uniform or dress code may be mandatory in some of these positions too.

Usually the first place I think of shuttle buses are the airport. They are all over representing rental car companies, hotel transportation and general passenger transportation to home or local businesses. The one I appreciate the most is the shuttle at the ski resorts. Other places you can find shuttle driver jobs would be retirement communities or local businesses that use shuttles as transportation around their company campus. Large churches often use shuttle buses for parking lots and events. There are also private companies that provide transportation to events, parties and services for the elderly. Search a job board or contact a job agency and you should be able to locate the right job.
