Thomas Built Buses has a great reputation in the area (and across the country), so I was excited to get to work with such an iconic brand and within a company that was so highly respected. But more than that, I wanted my work to matter. I wanted to find work that gave me a true purpose, one that made a difference in the lives of many.
Every school day, more than 25 million children ride the big yellow bus to school. Our school buses are the first thing they see in the morning and the last part of their school day. For some, the yellow school bus is the ONLY way for them to get to school; without the yellow school bus, their educational process does not begin.
In addition, the school bus is the safest form of transportation for children riding to and from school -nearly 70 times safer than taking a car. As the leading manufacturer in our market, it is our mission to safely transport students, and extending that mission makes for a noble profession. For me, purpose found.
