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.
