Before joining County Connection nearly 25 years ago Oscar worked at the Port of Oakland as a truck driver/owner/operator. He liked his job, but felt something lacking. When he became a County Connection bus operator he realized it was interaction with people that was missing. “My passengers bring me joy every day”. Oscar grew up in El Salvador and had a sister with special needs. This instilled in him a great sense of compassion for passengers that may need a little extra assistance, time, or patience.
Oscar’s top priority has always been the safety of his passengers, and feels that his perfect safe driving record is his greatest accomplishment here at County Connection. After nearly 25 years Oscar should be thinking of retirement – but his head and heart are in a tug of war at the moment, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
