Job Title: Professional Coach Operator

Fun Fact: “I love playing Uno and Connect Four with my family, and also bowling with family and friends.”

Keith in His Own Words

I’ve been in transportation my whole career, beginning as an airline reservationist. I started driving professionally as a school bus driver. I moved on to become a city bus driver, charter bus driver, and now a coach operator. I’ve been driving buses 22 years and log about 65,000 miles a year. I’m proud to have earned safe driving awards for one year, five years, 10 years—and soon—15 years of service.

I really enjoy interacting with my passengers and other drivers. I have a strong sense of care and responsibility on the road. Despite the challenges, I find being a professional driver relaxing. But I’m always focused on getting safely back to my wife and children, because they depend on me—and I depend on them.
