UV is hosting a school bus test drive event from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, March 11.

Don’t be afraid of the big yellow bus!

School buses are easier to drive than you might think. They are also among the safest vehicles on the road. Unadilla Valley CSD is always looking for new bus drivers.

Be home when your kids are home!

Being a school bus driver is a great option for parents who need to have holidays and vacations off. Childcare may be available through UV in order to make it easier for parents to be a school bus driver.

We invite district residents ages 21 and over to take a test drive in a UV 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’ll have coffee and doughnuts for attendees.

You do not need a CDL to test drive a bus or apply for a bus driver position. For more information, please contact Mike Anson at (607) 845-7500, ext. 1503 or
