Children hold signs saying we heart  our bus drivers

Blake is looking to hire both experienced bus drivers and those interested in training to become one. At Blake, our drivers play an important role in our students’ educational, social and personal growth, and our buses serve as an extension of the classroom. Our students are expected to be respectful and attentive on the bus, allowing our drivers to spend less time managing student behavior and more time building relationships and helping students achieve.

Driver benefits include medical, dental, vision, disability and life insurance, 401K retirement plans and more. The position pays $26 an hour with a $2,500 hiring bonus. Blake will also train and pay qualified candidates to receive their Class B commercial driver’s license with school bus endorsements.

This position is based on a minimum 20-hour workweek with each day split into two, 2-hour route shifts with the possibility of additional charter hours assigned periodically.

“We’ve had the same bus driver year after year, and my children have enjoyed seeing him at the beginning and end of their school day. I don’t know what we would do without the Blake bus.”

“Especially for my son, the transition to school was smoothed by starting and ending every day with the unrivaled joy of a bus ride. Bus #39 and driver Linda have become sources of continuity and friendship. She knows who the students are and what they love. That she cares about them is evident in her bright greetings and farewells every day. What more could we hope for?”

“Having a Blake bus driver is like having a grandparent drive your kids to school.”
