WESTON - A Weston company hosted a so-called "bus-rodeo." The event served as an open house for the Lamers Bus Company.
The goal of the event is to see if people are interested in a job as a bus driver. People who visited could get behind the wheel and take a bus for a spin.
Lamers serves the DC Everest School District, and there is a shortage of drivers.
"It's industry wide, it's not limited to just Wisconsin, our district, it's actually nationwide. A lot of folks don't know that they can deal with it, it's actually a very rewarding job," said Lamers Weston Dispatcher Sean McCue.
Lamers has both school and commercial buses. The company also has locations in Mosinee and Rothschild.
If you are interested pursuing a career as a bus driver, you can visit any of the Lamers locations.
