Bus Drivers Needed for Peak to Peak's New Electric Buses

Bus Drivers Needed for Peak to Peak's New Electric Buses

Our school community is embarking on an exciting new transportation program where we will have four new electric-powered school buses in August. These school buses will include three 71-passenger buses (Type-C) and one 24-passenger bus (Type A), which will be used to transport students on field trips to various locations, take students to athletic competitions, take Kindergartners to swim lessons, and potentially provide limited morning pick-up service to families in our local communities. This summer we are expanding our north parking lot to provide a location to house the buses, including the infrastructure necessary to power the buses. In order to make this opportunity a reality, we will also need school bus drivers. While we have one driver hired and one other interested in completing the certification process, we still need at least one more driver and a back-up driver. The bus driver position at Peak to Peak is designed to guarantee a minimum of 20 hours of work per week starting at $22.66/hour, and provides full employee benefits. To qualify for a bus driver position, one must possess or obtain a commercial driver's license and get the school bus endorsement. To get the school bus endorsement, we will work with BVSD's certified bus driver trainers to help candidates get the necessary classroom and behind-the-wheel training. Candidates will be compensated for the time spent in the certification process. If you, or someone you know, are interested, please contact Sam Todd at sam.todd@bvsd.org. Also, if you know any existing school bus drivers who might be interested in joining the P2P team, we would welcome their application for employment. To learn more, the positions are posted on the Peak to Peak website HERE.
