Bus Roadeo

Bus Roadeo competitions are safety competitions held at the Regional, State and International Level.  These competitions are mainly designed to improve drivers awareness of their surroundings, equipment and passengers.  A obstacale course is set up to simulate passenger stops, right & left turns, intersections, obstacles in the roadway and stopping ability to name a few.

Since 1984 Jefferson Transit has been competing in Regional and State level of competition.  Starting in 2007 Jefferson Transit began competing on the International level.  Agencies range in size and include smaller systems like Jefferson Transit and larger system like Chicago Metropolitan Transit and Seattle Metro.
