Working for People Mover was a very rewarding job.
Pros: the most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that i was helping people by serving them.
Cons: the hardest part was dealing with customers determined to ruin my day.
A typical day as a People Mover bus driver started by acquiring
any important information affecting my driving duties such as
detours, accident, or police/troopers alerts.
After performing a ten-minute pre-trip inspection. I'd drive the
bus to one of several locations to start my shift transporting
customers to and from downtown on several fixed routes – more... throughout
In addition to learning the technical aspects of becoming a better
driver, I learned the art of better customer service.
The management at People Mover, wheather in operations,
customer service, or maintenance were all top notch. They were
the right people in the right place at the right time.
Working with others who enjoyed serving the public was nice. – less
