Bus Operators Compete in Annual Bus Roadeo Contest

Is your Bus Operator an award winner? Possibly, if he or she competed in the NJ TRANSIT Bus Roadeo contest September 25th at Howell Bus Garage in Monmouth County.

More than two dozen Bus Operators from throughout the state – the best-of-the-best at NJ TRANSIT – demonstrated their skills on an obstacle course in a 40-foot bus that simulated bus stops, lane changes, tight turns, backing up and more, while trying to avoid carefully placed traffic cones and barriers along the way.
