Bus Driver Positions Open
Displaced bus drivers may catch a break in Austin. Many have applied for the 43 positions currently open. AISD Superintendent Pat Forgione says that 10 more positions could also be created to handle new routes for evacuees starting school.
New Orleans bus driver Ocie Wright says that he's been driving for 15 years, and this job would be a perfect fit. A bus driver's starting pay in Austin is $11 an hour. Benefits include health insurance, retirement and paid days for training plus personal leave, sick time, and holidays.
