4 Unforgettable Reasons To Become a Bus Driver

When deciding your future career path, have you ever considered becoming a bus driver? Being a bus driver has a variety of rewarding benefits, exciting opportunities, and so much more. Of course, you have to receive your Class B Commercial Driver’s License in order to get started.

Flexible Work Schedule

Depending on the type of bus driver you become, you may have the opportunity to work flexible hours or determine your own schedule. For instance, school bus drivers have the opportunity to travel during the early morning and late afternoon hours, providing them with the ability to have a break in-between. Some drivers fill this break with extra work hours by driving for field trips and other activities with the school children. Should you choose to do something else with your hours, that’s your choice to do so!

Great Opportunities

You don’t have to be a school bus driver. You could be a tour bus driver for a band, or a hospitality company and travel the world. No matter where your bus takes you, you get to be along for the ride and enjoy the sites, sounds and culture. Plus, on your breaks, you have the chance to explore whatever city or area you are currently in.

Benefits and Salary

Being a bus driver certainly does have its benefits — specifically a salary with benefits! While each company has their own salary rate and offered benefits, they are quite nice. For example, according to U.S. News Money, the highest paid bus drivers receive a salary of $60,090. Most bus driving companies also offer great benefits for bus drivers and their families, including:

  • Health Insurance
  • Life Insurance
  • Dental Insurance
  • Rental Insurance
  • Sick Leave
  • Vacation Time
  • And More

Other career paths take years of training, endless loans, and potentially attendance at a college or university.
