Dean Transportation looking for Drivers, School Bus Attendants

Michigan needs more school bus drivers and Thursday, Dean Transportation worked to hire a few more.

Dean Transportation hosted a hiring fair at the Cherryland VFW in Traverse City.

They’re recruiting bus drivers and attendants to drive and work on busses with special needs students.

They need people to drive for the Traverse Bay ISD. The area covers five counties and multiple routes.

They say finding qualified drivers is no easy task.

“There is a shortage of people who can qualify to get their CDL, so you start from that, then you start with a low unemployment, and it becomes even more difficult,” said Nikki Soule of Dean Transporation.

Dean Transportation says they will pay candidates to get their CDL. For more information go to
