Charter Trip Driver (School Bus)


The school athletics and field trip drivers perform a critical role within the Klein Transportation company by transporting student sports teams to and from their games and practices. These drivers generally only need to be available in the afternoons. Most trips run from around 1:30pm in the afternoon until around 8:00pm when the sports teams are returned to their school of origin. This is a great job for retired persons, former and brand new truck drivers, and aspiring motorcoach drivers.


The successful candidate will enjoy supporting students in their sports endeavors. This is a great job for former or current coaches, teachers, and school administrators. Drivers with a CDL or large vehicle driving experience are preferred but Klein Transportation's experienced training department can train and test applicants to obtain their CDL and passenger endorsement.
