Now is the perfect time to consider a career as a school bus driver! Here's why...

1. Try it out with no strings attached.

Come test drive a school bus on Saturday, April 22 at Northfield Jr/Sr High School.

The event runs from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM. Everyone 21 and older with a clean driving record is welcome to attend.

For the first time, the federally required three-day training is being offered right here in Wabash.
