Q&A
How long have you driven for RTD, and have you always been a bus driver? 

I've been with RTD for almost 16 years and have always been a driver.

What were you in a previous life?

I would have to say an astronomer, due to the fact that I really enjoy looking at the sky at night and wondering what's beyond them and hopefully we will find out in this lifetime.

What do you like best about your job?

The independence of being out there on your own but knowing you have back up if needed. Some of the people I work with are the greatest. My best friends are people I worked with in the past! That's very important to me!

If you could listen to music while working, what type?

Old school METAL or hard rock!!🤘

If you could deck out your bus,what style?

Make it a rockin bus.

If you could change your uniform color, what color?

Right now I have the option of multiple colors, Thank you RTD.

What type of service would you drive if given the choice, and/or favorite service to drive or operate?

I really enjoy driving a bus but maybe would like to try over night charters. My favorite service to operate is the airport routes ABs. For me it's mostly driving, with few stop and go's Also I meet a lot of interesting people which are 99% happy!! It's the only route that gives you a little exercise. There is also the possibility of a tip.
