School Bus Driver Recruitment Week Press Conference

August 1 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Connecticut School Transportation Association (COSTA) is holding a weeklong recruitment event beginning Monday, August 1, to hire school bus drivers across Connecticut.

OLD SAYBROOK – Connecticut School Bus Driver Recruitment Week begins on Monday, August 1 and continues through Sunday, August 7, 2022.

Members of the media are invited to a press conference to discuss the launch of this initiative at M & J Bus, Inc. – 130 Ingham Hill Rd, Old Saybrook, CT 06475 on Monday, August 1, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. 

COSTA’s staff will be joined by the Department of Motor Vehicles Commissioner Sibongile Magubane and the Department of Education Commissioner Charlene M. Russell-Tucker to discuss how vital school bus drivers are to our communities. We will also hear from local school bus company representatives and drivers about how rewarding a career in school transportation can be.

We are seeking the support of the media in this weeklong endeavor to highlight the exciting opportunity to become a school bus driver in this state. Many drivers from diverse backgrounds and experiences are ready to share their stories about the positive impact driving has had on their lives. From the ability to forgo daycare costs by bringing your kids to work, to becoming a mentor to a child who needs it, to being able to enjoy snow days and summers off with the family—there are so many reasons to apply.

We will connect media representatives with school bus drivers and industry members from several local companies throughout Connecticut to share why this career can been a very rewarding experience, and an opportunity to make a positive impact in our communities. COSTA will also provide contact and additional information for those interested in applying to drive.

We believe strategic collaboration with the local media, will help give this important issue the attention it needs.

Please contact us with any questions.
