Hi! My name is Kim. Lately I've been thinking of a change of job. When I look around, driving a bus seems like it might be a good option for me. As it happens, last night I was talking with a friend of a friend, who drives one of the local transit buses. He said to me: "I've been in this occupation for a good number of years now.
I've driven school buses, coaches and now I'm driving urban. It's been a good career for me. I like the transit scene though because I have regular hours and I have benefits. I also like working with people, so this is pretty good for me." It got me thinking. So I asked him if I could shadow him. He said that he'd make arrangements with his boss. So come with me as I start my explorations with Jim. (Note: "shadowing" is not permitted in the "real" world; but is used here to let you "see" what the occupation is really like).
