School Bus Drivers are Valuable to Us

At Northstar Bus Lines of Maple Grove, we understand that driving children to school takes a rare combination of grit and gentleness. Not just anyone can be a good driver, especially when it comes to working with kids. A bus driver must be firm enough to maintain safety protocol, but gentle enough to console a scared kindergartner on their first day of school. They must have laser-like focus with the ability to keep their eyes firmly on the road despite their precious and noisy cargo behind them. Most of all, they must have a deep love for children and understand that these kids are our future.

It’s our mission to take care of and support our drivers. By taking a Minneapolis school bus driver job with us, you will join a close-knit family of employees determined to make a difference in the lives of kids. How do we facilitate this?

  • Employee events keep you firmly in the loop of our company’s community.
  • Weekly pay makes budgeting simple for you. Very few MN school bus companies offer weekly pay; we do because we feel that our highly trained drivers are a valuable investment.
  • We also offer completely flexible hours. As a driver, you can pick how much and when you work. At Northstar, we want to make bus driving jobs as accessible as we can for everyone; we understand that not everybody who wants to be a driver can work at the same times each week. We’re one of the few bus companies that lets you choose your own schedule.

In addition to our Minnesota school bus driver jobs, we also offer employment opportunities in driving charter busses. We also seek people who are willing to work off hours driving students to field trips or summer camps, or who are willing to transport religious groups.
