The city where I live grows by leaps and bounds now. It was so different when I first moved there 25 years ago. Of course, it will still considered a major metropolitan city back then, but when you have been there for 25 years and seen how it has changed over the years, it is pretty interesting. I had heard that drivers who drive party buses in Toronto receive pretty nice paychecks. I used to drive a truck for a living, and that was okay. I knew that I would be able to do the same for a bus rental company. I applied, passed the test and started working for one of these companies a year ago.

My job is a blast. That is the first word that I use when people ask me about it. I know people who drive shuttles for the airport, people who drive school busses and so much more, but they never say they love their job like I do. My fellow employees all say the same about what we do for a living, so I know it’s not just my feeling. Our bosses treat us well, and the customers seem to love us. Or, I should say that they love us during the short time that they get to spend time with us riding around.

I really did not think about the having fun aspect of my job when I applied. I just did it because I knew it paid well. But after my first week of driving people around, I knew that I had stumbled on a job that I would like to stay at for many years to come. Every ride is fun. I have taken hundreds of people around the city, and not once has any of the rides been quiet or boring. Everyone has a good time.
