About the Book

There is much to know about being a bus driver. It takes about thirty-five days to train a new employee. But as Doug points out, some skills come through experience that takes years to develop. This book contains material needed to choose your style on how to pass by the fare box and how to maintain Zen when the bus is full. “The Dao of things cannot be complete without the Dao of driving a bus. I’d ride with Doug all the way to the Himalayas just to listen to the art of his wisdom.” - David Biddle, author of Implosions of America — A Story Collection “Nice read. I like the mix of situational context and life lessons.” - Chad Upham, graduate, Art Center College of Design
