  1. What happens in a bus roadeo? Do the drivers drive between orange cones? Have speed tests to repair problems? Effectively deal with difficult passengers? Obviously it’s a test of skill but what kind(s)?

  2. Congratulations to Joseph Acuna, Bill Heiler Don Reiwtavee from Maintenace and Mark Holland Driver :)
