Faced with a nationwide shortage of school bus drivers, some Maryland county executives and school district leaders are pumping more money to increase drivers’ wages, whose average starting salary is $19.45 an hour, according to the Maryland State Department of Education. 

That average starting salary is considerably less than any other commercial driver license holder — including those who operate dump trucks or deliver for Amazon or DoorDash — said Erin Appel, who represents Maryland School Bus Contractor Association. She testified about the shortage of school bus drivers before state lawmakers in a virtual briefing on Wednesday.

 

If you are having trouble getting a driver scheduled for testing at your local MVA, please reach out to your area Vice President. MSBCA has established a means by which to get drivers scheduled in an expedited manner and your area VP will be able to assist in getting this done.
