School Bus Test Drive Event

School bus test drive eventDon’t be afraid of the big yellow bus!

Schoharie CSD is hosting a school bus test drive event at the school on Wednesday, July 10, from 5 to 7 p.m.

School buses are easier to drive than you might think. They are also among the safest vehicles on the road.

Schoharie CSD is always looking for new bus drivers. Driving a school bus is a great option for parents who need to have holidays and school vacations off.   

We invite area residents ages 21 and over to take a test drive in a Schoharie school bus. We’ll have a course set up on the school campus so you can experience what it’s like to drive a bus in a controlled environment and with the assistance of our experienced drivers. We will have pizza and beverages for attendees. You do not need a CDL (commercial driver’s license) to test drive a bus or apply for a bus driver position. The district will help prospective drivers get their CDL. 

We will also have information on the various benefits school bus drivers are eligible for.

For more information, please contact the Transportation Department at (518) 295-6684.
