Bus Driving – “Hey, I can do that too!”
Rin Prasad started driving buses five years ago, after seeing a female bus driver in Western Sydney. Before, Rin worked in administration. “That job just had so much pressure and I felt the boss is always on my back. I wanted to do something with responsibility, but where I am my own boss as well.”
Bus driving felt fantastic from the start
Rin says she was surprised how easy it was to learn to drive a bus. “When I first sat behind the big wheel, it came to me really naturally, almost like driving a car!”
She loves her new job serving the community. “It makes my day, every time, to be out on the road. I love being outdoors, seeing new places, and interacting with people.” As a mum she says it fits perfectly into her lifestyle and allows her to spend time with her kids.
The training was great
Rin says she had mentors and trainers at Busways. “They taught me everything thoroughly and I always felt safe and in control.”
Driving trainer Andrew Curnow agrees. “Busways provides all the training and support you need. No heavy vehicle experience is required. You can complete a fully paid heavy vehicle driver
competency course to qualify and get out on the road dropping off and picking up passengers in about four to six weeks.”
Busways is hiring now for bus drivers at Ryde and Willoughby depots and Western Sydney depots!
