    Bus Drivers in the United States

    One of the most common jobs in the United States for a bus driver is to work for a public school, driving students to and from the school building. As of 2004, 71% of bus drivers in the US were employed by schools. In other countries school transport is often provided by the same companies that run other bus services in the area so school bus driver is not a separate position.

    In the United States, finding a position as a bus driver usually requires that the individual possess a commercial driver's license (CDL) and specialized training for the vehicle. Various other educational and vocational training may be required, however this varies from place to place. Bus drivers also need to possess social skills for interacting with their passengers, which is a daily occurrence.

    Bus drivers who work for local government transportation agencies earn more than those who work for other types of employers.
