Job hunting? Ever considered becoming a bus driver?

Oct 24, 2018

Interested in a career that offers a good work-life balance, job security and leadership opportunities?

Consider driving a school bus for the Greater Amsterdam School District.

School bus drivers typically work part-time, in the morning and the afternoon with a long break in between. Interested drivers may decide to cover additional afterschool runs and sports or field trips, but otherwise, they can count on weekends, evenings and summers off as well as paid holidays. The schedule offers a lot of flexibility, which may be perfect for a retiree, stay-at-home parent or college student. 

Bus drivers can also earn competitive hourly wages and may be eligible for health insurance and retirement plans.

In Amsterdam, the Transportation Department is currently seeking to fill open substitute bus driver positions. View opportunities and download job applications here.

Driving a school bus requires a commercial driver’s license, a clean driving record and the ability to meet additional standards set by New York state. With paid training, the district further prepares its drivers to ensure students’ safety while on the school bus.
