School bus drivers face obstacles in ‘rodeo’
Several districts within Region 5 took part Saturday in the South East Texas Association for Pupil Transportation annual School Bus Safety Road-e-o at Bridge City Intermediate School. Drivers compete by taking two written tests and driving through an obstacle course.
There are two categories of school buses used, Conventional and Transit. Bridge City ISD had two driver’s place in the Transit division. Shane Love won first place and Samee Reese placed third.
Both will continue on to Austin to represent Bridge City ISD and Region5 in the State School Bus Safety Road-e-o. The driving contest will be June 12 in Austin.
