Entry to DOTY is voluntary, but once our drivers hop on board, they’re put through their paces, including criteria like years of service, accident record, disciplinary history and driver behavior. 📜🚦
Our amazing bus drivers faced off in two categories:
🚺 Female drivers: Rigid bus with 7 fierce participants
🚹 Male drivers: Rigid bus with 10 incredible contenders
The competition was a four-part thriller:
