Ugobus driver / passenger assistant

I have worked for Ugobus for the past 5 years and have enjoyed every moment of it.

As a driver / passenger assistant, I was given all the training that was required for the role and every few years this has been re-done. The support that is given whilst doing the job is always there and any problems that arise are dealt with in a professional manner.

I love doing my job as I find it to be very rewarding. The service users are always pleased to see us, which makes the job even more satisfying.  Each day can be different to the last, some can be more challenging than others but it is always a pleasure to transport our customers.

I hope to continue work for Ugobus for a long time as I enjoy my job with a passion.
