Have you ever wondered what’s inside the yellow school bus that is always stopping and blocking traffic?
That big, yellow and slow-moving vehicle carries “precious cargo” that will someday grow up. But now, they are little people and many have special needs.
California has the highest standards for a school bus driver. The drivers are some of the best-trained in the country, with many hours of classroom and behind-the-wheel training, fingerprinting and background checks before being hired, and they receive constant training. We’re on the road before the sun rises, picking up children for various schools, some of us doing about 100 miles a day, just around town.
