A quick repost and expansion of what is probably the most important piece on this blog– my thoughts on how to enjoy your time as a bus driver. While I'm not qualified to sit here and pretend I've got all the answers, twelve years of driving (a decade of that downtown) has offered an insight or two, most of which I've learned from the best of my colleagues. I hope you'll find their notes useful. I have.
Of particular note is a recent addition discussing security in detail– not just what to do in certain situations, but how to think about certain issues. Hint: don't let KIRO7 succeed in their efforts at trying to scare you. They just want ratings. You've got more important things to concern yourself with.
See you on the road! I'll be waving from the 7/49...
Questions? Intrigued? Concerned? Ask me at the base. Or better yet, come out for a ride. There's more than one way to do this job, and some ways are easier than others.
