Bus Drivers VS. Truck Drivers

Both are CDL drivers? But which one is better for employment? Should you become a bus driver?

Driving a bus also requires a CDL, but why is being a truck driver better than being a bus driver? In the United States, along with having your CDL, you may also be required to have other educational and vocational training, which is not necessary when driving a truck. Also, if you aren’t the most social person, driving a truck is better because you don’t have to interact with numerous people every day. Whether you are driving a city bus, or school bus, or a tour bus, you are in constant interaction with people, whereas when you’re out on the open road, you can enjoy the scenery, and don’t have to worry about two kids fighting in the back. Then there is pay. The average bus driver in the United States is making $19,416 annually, whereas the average truck driver is making $38,440 a year (Salary.com).
