Bus Driver

Company Summary:

Bus to Show, Inc. (bustoshow.org) is a gritty and determined nonprofit corporation that is more than happy to get its hands dirty working toward its mission of reducing the impaired driving and carbon emissions that result from events. For the last 10 years, we have offered, promoted, coordinated and provided financially-accessible, community-integrated, event-based bus service that is so much fun, that many of our 40,000 annual riders forget that they are actually being responsible citizens at the same time.

During any given month, our fleet consists of between 10 and 30 hearty, durable, full-size school buses equipped with 12” powered speakers on the inside and funky murals on the outside, which are painted by local artists as part of RiNo District’s Crush Walls Street Art Festival each year. Our team consists of at least that many amazing quasi-celebrity drivers with CDL BP2 Driver Licenses, spotless background checks, Driving Records, and drug screens. We maintain an event calendar at bustoshow.org where show-goers can reserve their spots on the round trip buses from various locations in Denver, Boulder, and Fort Collins, to various destinations, like Red Rocks, Red Rocks, and of course, Red Rocks.

This is a steadily growing company that is firmly established as an extremely well-loved part of Colorado’s live music and events-driven culture.
