Are You A Bus Driver? 

How's it going these days?

No doubt about it, there’s a lot going on in the world right now. If you are a public driver, then you are out there on the front line. You face unbelievable stress just showing up for work…if there is any work!

Many bus companies shut down as ridership plunged. Schools closed. So did school buses. Taxis gone. Uber and similar services...all gone. 

And the news isn’t good either. 

While the United States is dealing with the largest outbreak, the rest of the world anxiously awaits the second wave. 

Then there are the horrendous stats:

  • More than 130 bus workers in New York have died from the virus
  • At least 34 bus workers in the United Kingdom have died from the virus
  • A bus driver in France was killed for the simple request of asking passengers to wear face masks
  • A report from the University College London stated that bus drivers are dying at 3.5 times the rate of other occupations. 

So how are you dealing with the stresses of being a driver at this time? 

  • Who do you turn to when it all gets too much? 
  • Are you simply reaching for yet another beer? 
  • Do you avoid it all with hours of binge watching Netflix?
  •  Do you find yourself snapping more frequently at loved ones? At strangers? On social media?
  • Is there something else that is bothering you but you have no one to talk to?
