Are you a friendly and positive individual who enjoys children and has a desire to make a difference in their lives?
Do you want a career that fits your lifestyle? Perhaps "you're a stay-at-home parent and don't want to give up time with your children; a retiree looking for a rewarding way to spend part of each day; or a student over 21 looking for added income."
This career opportunity, as described on the Hamilton-Wentworth Student Transportation Services website, is professional school bus driving. We need more drivers in this region and we need them fast. Formed in 2008 to provide "safe, effective and efficient transportation services," for eligible students in both of our English-speaking school boards, the HWSTS is trying to entice you to this career choice, because some students in Hamilton will be waiting on the side of the road for buses that will be late until at least October if you don't sign up.
