Dear [Department Manager Name],
I am writing in regard to the School Bus Driver position for the Los Angeles Unified School District. I have over seven years of experience operating commuter vehicles, as well as nearly four years of experience driving a school bus in the 4th largest school district in the country, Chicago. My positive attitude and enthusiastic demeanor are well-suited towards interacting with young kids daily. Students frequently expressed their joy in having me as their school bus driver and twice nominated me for a School Bus Driver of the Year award.
I began my driving career as a Municipal Bus Operator and during my time working for PACE, I was able to increase my yearly on-time performance by an average of 82%. As a School Bus Driver for Chicago Public Schools, I regularly attended school functions as a field trip charter and have experience transporting all age groups (elementary, middle, and high school). I successfully completed emergency medical training courses with certifications in CPR, AED, and basic first aid. I’m equipped to operate lifts and ramps necessary in the transportation of students with disabilities. My professional driving and safety records are spotless, in addition to having a clean personal driving record.
The Los Angeles Unified School District requires a level of dedication and attentiveness to safety from bus drivers that my prior experience certainly showcases. I would be thrilled to continue my school bus driver career as a member of your exceptional fleet. Please, feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience. Thank you for your time.
