Why this OC Transpo driver loves his job

For all of the hate directed towards OC Transpo, sometimes it's hard to remember that Ottawa has a lot of good bus drivers who enjoy what they do and are genuinely concerned about the comfort and well-being of their passengers. I was reminded of this earlier ths week when I saw this post on LiveJournal from an anonymous OC Transpo driver, titled "Why I like my job":

  1. Pay is pretty darn good. Of course would like to see more.
  2. I like my hours, I own and ride a horse and train for competition so I like riding during the day so driving nights is ideal. My favourite shift being 4pm to midnight. Also I find nights are wasted watching TV so why not work instead and do my fun stuff during the day.
  3. Love driving the transitway, fun being on a road way that is just for me.
  4. When I am driving I am in control of my enviroment for the most part.
  5. I am not sitting at a desk!!!
  6. I like people for the most part.
  7. I get some good laughs most shifts.
  8. I don't live in the city but west of it, so I can leave my job completely behind when I go home. :)
  9. If I get bored with my work, I just have to wait 3-4 months and it will change.
  10. There is really never a dull moment driving a city bus, always something happening somewhere.
