Bus Roadeo Winners |
Is your bus operator a Roadeo winner? Maybe. NJ TRANSIT recently hosted its annual New Jersey Bus Roadeo contest, where bus operators demonstrate the extraordinary skills they use on the roads of New Jersey, and parts of New York and Pennsylvania.
More than 20 bus operators from 10 different bus garages were pre-qualified for this year's Roadeo based on their safety record and professionalism before competing in the event. The qualified bus operators then drove a 40-foot bus through an 11-point obstacle course in seven minutes or less. Along the way, they encountered traffic cones, barrels and curbs. Each obstacle simulates a situation bus operators routinely encounter, such as lane changes, bus stops, turns and tight clearances.
This year's first-place winners are (pictured below, left to right) Francisco Vides of Meadowlands Garage, Dan Bruey of Egg Harbor Garage and Anthony Wozniak of Howell Garage.
