Advancement Opportunities

Many of our drivers advance to either a Bus Driver Floater or a Bus Driver Supervisor. Many others move or return to other FCPS positions in administration, instruction, etc. Bus driving can be a good career, a good job for a season in your life, or a doorway to other opportunities with FCPS.

We pay floater drivers a higher rate of pay for their experience and ability to drive a variety of buses and routes and manage different groups of student passengers. Floaters are drivers with full benefits that fill-in for drivers who are on leave.
