School Bus Driver

The Combined Christian School Transportation Association (CCSTA) is looking for school bus drivers to join their team. This is the company that organizes and runs the routes for the Christian schools in the lower mainland. Hours would be 2-2.5 in the morning and 2-2.5 hrs after school. We would also look at sharing routes where you would only need to drive the morning or afternoon runs. This is a great way to earn some extra money. To keep the bus service going we desperately need to find new drivers.
