What People Say About Us!

Seeing the kids on the bus grow each year, and sharing in their stories about school and life is such an amazing feeling. ~ Nakia
Nakia, Kunkel Bus Driver
Having children, one being a toddler, driving a school bus is the perfect job for me. Besides having the same days off as my older children, my little one gets to ride the school bus with me. This situation allows me to spend more time with my child while earning an income. Since Kunkel is a family operated business, we are all part of the family! Everyone is friendly, easy to talk to and down to earth. Kunkel Bus Line cares about it’s employees and shows their appreciation by hosting Kunkel family events throughout the year. It really is a great place to work at. ~ Julie
