Try a bus drive event

Salisbury Reds bus company is offering a try-it-and-see event for those who might like a new career as a bus driver. The local operator is hosting a special bus driving event at the city’s Livestock Market on the Netherhampton Road on Saturday, March 12.

Experienced instructors and managers, who were once drivers, will guide would-be drivers to prove just how easy it is to manoeuvre the vehicles across a specially laid-out course.

“Many people think that buses are difficult to handle – but we want to show them they’re no more tricky than driving a car once you get the hang of them,” said Salisbury Reds operations manager, Alex Chutter.

“We want to give them a chance to see if they have the aptitude, and we’re hoping many of those who attend will apply to work with us in the future.

“Across the UK, women are vastly under-represented in this industry and it would be great to see more of them consider working in our business as drivers. There is no need to book. To take part, call into the Livestock Market site between 10am and 3pm on the day.”
