Wednesday was the first day of Lane Transit District’s Come Drive the Bus recruitment event. Anyone interested in applying for a bus driving job gets to take a test drive around the LTD lot a few times. Before jumping in the driver’s seat, each person receives some training on how to drive a big bus.
“It was great. I mean, it’s actually easy to operate a bus. You’ve just got to take it slow and easy,” said LTD applicant Marty Schmidt.
Anyone interested in signing up for a time slot can find the entry form on LTD’s website.
LTD will be running the event from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day until Aug. 27.
