Why use an MSBOA Contractor? The Minnesota School Bus Operators Association represents Minnesota's privately owned school bus contractors. We provide over 60% of the school buses used to transport Minnesota children to and from school and school related activities. Our members represent an average of over 50 years experience in the industry and are responsible for over 400,000 students transported 233,000 miles per day. It is the mission of the Minnesota School Bus Operators Association to serve and represent the interests of our members with a unified voice; to advance the passenger transportation industry's image, overall safety, efficiency, and reliability; to develop and distribute educational programs and solutions; to positively influence Federal and State government actions; to advocate ethical operations; to provide a means to establish and maintain relationships with fellow industry professionals; and to strive for a healthy business environment. Come Join Our Team! Bus Driving is a great career or sideline job for those that need to supplement their income. There are flexible shifts in the morning or afternoon, even throughout the day and evenings! Parents: Get paid to drive your kids to school or go on their class trips. Have the same schedule as your children. Be a Mentor! Working with children is a rewarding experience. You are the first person on the educational team to see students and can help set the tone for kids throughout the day. School buses today are modern, technology enhanced vehicles. Almost all buses have automatic transmissions. They have emissions scrubbing technology and run on BioDiesel. They are clean and GREEN! You will be promoting a healthier environment because each school bus removes 36 vehicles from the roads. Many have GPS and cameras to help keep students safe. Many companies operate vehicles of all sizes from cars and vans to full size buses. Becoming a school bus driver is a multi-step process BUT your local contractor will help you and guide you through the process every step of the way!! Every contractor offers training on site and many offer testing at their location -- no waiting at the DMV! Do you sell school bus or business related products or services?
