Interested in driving a school bus but unsure what that’s like? Come out Saturday, May 18, at Dragon Stadium to apply as well as take a turn behind the wheel of a full-sized Nacogdoches ISD passenger bus.

The NISD Ride & Drive Event will be held 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the parking lot on the home side of Dragon Stadium. School buses will be available to provide interested applicants with a hands-on driving experience.

NISD transportation officials will be on hand to answer questions, conduct on-site interviews and assist with the application process. And to provide applicants with a chance to drive a bus.

For those hired, the district provides paid training to prepare for the required CDL testing. Drivers can also receive insurance benefits and a 10-month work schedule.

Applicants wanting to try out behind the wheel must be at least 21-years-old and hold a valid driver’s license and social security card. Also, the day of the Ride & Drive Event, wear closed-toe shoes… tennis shoes are preferred.

For those with questions, contact the NISD Transportation Center at (936) 552-8780.
