Become a Bus Driver!

Employment, Transportation

Bus drivers play an essential role in Parkland School Division: they navigate 170+ routes each school day and ensure that 7,000+ student riders travel safely to and from school. Our Transportation Services department works closely with several area bus contractors, many of whom are looking to add to their ranks of capable, safety-oriented drivers.

Why Drive a Bus?

Bus driving offers a unique, flexible employment opportunity:

  • Find a perfect fit if you're looking for part-time hours.
  • Work a split day shift from Monday to Friday—no weekends! (Contractors have various shifts and routes.)
  • Take holidays and summers off with your children.
  • Earn extra income.
  • Save on daycare costs: bring up to two children along on your route (must be at least six months old).
  • Save on gas by driving a bus: after you drop off your students at school, you can run errands in your free time: grab groceries, hit the gym, go to the library, and more! Many rural bus routes come into either Spruce Grove or Stony Plain.
  • Receive training to upgrade to a Class 2 driver’s licence. All required training is FREE!*

*Benefits and policies may vary by contractor.
