Bus Driver Jobs Vs. Driving with Uber

April 16, 2015 / US

You’ve probably seen pictures of those famous red double-decker London busses. People have had jobs as bus drivers and been driving busses around cities for a long time. In fact, way back in the mid 1830s horse-drawn busses carried people around London. Things are a lot different now, but if you think navigating traffic in a busy city sounds fun, or like driving huge groups of people, you might enjoy a bus driver job. If so, you’ll need a special license because most bus driver jobs require you to get a Commercial Driver’s License and also take some more specialized training classes.

Of course, if you like meeting people but prefer smaller groups, and enjoy driving your own car and making great money on your schedule, you should definitely consider driving with Uber. Uber’s the easiest way to get paid for driving your own car on your schedule.
