Manager and Driver Training
WYTRANS provides manager and driver training for transit agencies, using
funds provided by WYDOT and the agencies. WYTRANS offers top-notch, nationally
recognized, quality training programs and certifications through twenty-plus
instructors around Wyoming.
Paratransit Operator Training - The Paratransit Operator Training Program, developed by the Transportation Safety Institute and taught by WYTRANS trainers, ensures that drivers have current expertise in passenger assistance techniques and sensitivity skills appropriate for serving persons with disabilities. This comprehensive program also covers many safety issues specific to transit drivers from Backing the Bus to Dealing with Violence on the Bus.
Annual Bus Roadeo - Transit Drivers can test their skills annually in a statewide competition that includes a driving course, pre-trip inspection, and wheelchair handling. The state winner receives an all-expense paid trip to compete in the National Bus Roadeo.
Drug and Alcohol Training - Transit drivers are subject to the FTA requirements for drug and alcohol testing. Drivers are required to be tested prior to employment and then randomly each year. Supervisors and drivers receive "Substance Abuse Awareness and Reasonable Suspicion" training annually.
Other Training - Transit drivers are also trained in First Aid, CPR, Worker-Right-To-Know and Bloodborne Pathogens. Drivers who drive 15-passenger vehicles or larger are required to have a Commercial Driverís License or CDL.
