DRIVER TRAINING
Martin’s Bussing drivers participate in continuous improvement and on-going training programs that we believe rank them with the best on the road. The following training and rewards programs are just a few of the programs we have in place to make sure our team of drivers are among the safest, best-trained professionals in the industry.

MANAGING BEHAVIOUR
Our special training to assist drivers in developing and managing a safe, secure and positive environment on the school bus

MENTOR PROGRAM
All of our drivers benefit from experiencing our mentor program prior to starting their career as a school bus driver. Experienced drivers help new drivers to further develop their driving, route and student management skills.

PERFORMANCE REVIEW
A critical program in our on-going effort to improve our performance. It is a constant internal review and evaluation of the services that we provide. Our
driver evaluation program is an annual review in which the driver is accompanied during their school bus run by our team evaluator who checks for proper driving, as well as student management skills and ensures that risk areas are identified before safety is compromised.

Collisions on the roadway are inevitable. We pride ourselves on our safety record. When a driver has been involved in a collision our team of professionals identifies any area of weakness. The driver undergoes any refresher training required to ensure that any issue is corrected before another accident occurs.
