Our people are prompt, reliable, and great at multitasking. Though safety is the focus of our business, the face-to-face connections our school bus drivers make with students is a point of pride and an aspect of their job that means the most. What else do our school bus drivers like? The flexibility that their role gives them --- and their families. From parents who want to spend more time during or after school with their children and retirees looking to get back into the job market, to those who need a second way to supplement their income, careers with Student Transportation Inc. really do put you, and your priorities, in the driver’s seat.
Our school bus drivers must have the following certifications on file:
Free training is available for those who want to become professional school bus drivers for STI, including preparation for the written CDL exam, road evaluations, and classroom and additional behind-the-wheel instruction. The preparedness of our school bus drivers, and the way in which we comply with regulations, is vital to the safety of the students we transport. It is our goal to hire and train people who are committed to maintaining STI’s reputation as an industry leader. School bus drivers receive special training in safety and security, undergo regular drug and alcohol testing, and receive regular driving record checks. In addition, personal security and school bus traffic laws designed to protect students are strictly enforced at all times.
