Monroe Woodard will once again represent County Connection in the 2015 International Bus Rodeo sponsored by the American Public Transit Association (APTA). The annual competition features the best of the best from transit properties across the United States and Canada – all vying for the coveted bragging rights. This year’s event takes place in Fort Worth Texas in early May.
Competitors must maneuver a 40-foot bus through an obstacle course consisting of 10 “problems” ranging from precise passenger stops, tight right and left turns, serpentine turns, and a judgment stop – just to name a few. Drivers are also judged on their appearance, safety skills and the smoothness of operation. And finally, they have just 7 minutes to complete the course.
He recently earned the top score in County Connection’s local “roadeo” event. Monroe has been driving for County Connection for 20 years, competing for the past 10 years making improvements each year in his quest to earn the top spot.
Good luck Monroe – we know you’ll give it your best.
