FAX Drivers Compete In The 2007 FAX Bus Roadeo

The Department of Transportation/FAX will hold its 2007 Bus Roadeo at the FAX Yard in the Municipal Service Center on Saturday, March 31, 2007, from 8 a.m. to 12 Noon. Bus Operators will have the opportunity to demonstrate their driving skills through an obstacle course. They will also be judged on their appearance, demeanor, and safe behavior.

Volunteer judges will observe the performance of each bus operator and note how well they complete each element on the course. The score from each station will be tallied to arrive at a total score for each driver in the competition. The driver scoring the highest will represent FAX at the APTA 2007 International Roadeo competition in Nashville, Tennessee, on Sunday, May 6, 2007. The international competition includes Bus Operators from throughout the United States and Canada.

For more information regarding the 2007 FAX Roadeo, call Dean Huss, Operations Manager, at 621-1432.
