Job bus driver: Inside view
Passengers of public transport do not understand how difficult, hard, demanding job as a bus driver. But if the day to sit in the cockpit of public transport, then everything will fall into place. So, all the hardships and joys of the driver's operation in the report about how to work as a bus driver.
Waking need at half past four in the morning to six in time for the first flight. The attendant takes the first bus drivers and conductors from home and taking them to the garage. The machine on which we now have to go, washed night. Routes appoint a manager. Drivers strict schedule: transport should be coming to a stop with five minute intervals. Anatoly Razin, our bus driver, says: - Today, according to the plan six circles, each of which lasts an hour and fifty minutes. I travel not only on several routes. Early in the morning you always want to sleep, saving your favorite coffee and peanuts, which I kept clicking. First sleepy passengers get on the bus. They were lucky - the place is still there. People in public transport rides different: students hurrying to lectures, employees are late for work, retired. Everyone has their own concerns, mood and claims. - You, the bus driver, traffic cops do not stop? - I did not stop, but if we break the rules of the road, they do. Tell you a secret, sometimes violate the rules avtobusniki. Speed is not exceeded, and "prune" someone or a red light to pass - it happens. Typically, traffic police and car drivers treat us with understanding - not so easy to steer such a hulk. To break the bus comes to the parking lot. According to the schedule of the driver and the conductor have 40 minutes for lunch. The small dining area closely. Here are all fed at their own expense, the benefit rates nezaoblachnye. Over lunch, Anatoly says: - It is said that every driver animates his car. You talk with your coach? - No, but I love my car. My SCANIA bus company, is a woman's name, so treat her as a woman. "Women" Among the drivers are considered avtobusy- bitch, but we still found a common language with her. When it is "naughty", I treat this with understanding, because when I'm in a bad mood, she tolerates me. - Do you always buy a ticket on the bus? - There was no case that I did not pay for themselves. The ticket fare is worth a penny. And as a driver I've never are planted "hares". I think if the conductor was unable to find the right words to convince the passenger, free ride will be on the conscience of "hare". - We would like to become a personal driver of a famous person? - When you drive a bus, all passengers are equal to you, even if I'm on the bus sits Vladimir Putin himself, will still treat him as a mere passenger. By the end of the change of the driver and the conductor very tired, it can be swayed, but fatigue should not affect the quality of work and level of service. Today's passengers are very critical and complain about rude bus driver and conductor to them worthless.
