Black Gold School Division
Bus drivers play an essential role in the educational journey of the Black Gold School Division students.
We have 78 bus routes that transport over 3,700 students safely to and from school each day. Our Transportation department works closely with several area contractors, many of whom are looking to add to their ranks of capable, safety-oriented bus drivers and ensure everyone continues to get to and from school safely each day.
Bus driving offers a unique, flexible employment opportunity*:
Note: Benefits may vary by contractor.
Our bus contractors are working hard to ensure every route has a driver for the 2022-2023 school year, we are anticipating that, at times, we will experience driver shortages and therefore some routes may not be able to run every day. Shortages may occur due to a combination of illness or lack of substitute drivers.
Our Transportation department will work with bus contractors to try and avoid this scenario; however, as we enter the annual cold and flu season, or if COVID-19 cases increase, the frequency at which route cancellations occur may also increase.
If you are interested in driving a school bus, we will put you in touch with a contractor in the area/community that you would like to work in. You can also contact a contractor directly.
Once you are hired by a contractor, the Division will cover the cost of the MELT training so that you can obtain your license. If you already have a Class 1 license, we will cover the cost of the S-Endorsement course to upgrade your license.
