“More than just a driving job” is not just a slogan; it is what we believe. Arrow Stage Lines’ highly rated drivers come to us looking to travel, escape, meet great groups and go on adventures. The full experience is the Arrow Stage Lines’ culture. As a charter bus service provider, we aim to always deliver confidence in every aspect of a customer’s charter bus service. The same is true for our team. In the Arrow Stage Lines’ positive culture, we strive to ensure team members are recognized for high performance and superior customer service.
Arrow Stage Lines’ drivers are able to experience a wide array of perks and benefits, and one recent addition is the Arrow Stage Lines’ Driver Roadeo. The Driver Roadeo was launched in 2015 as a way to recognize those drivers who put forth superior customer service for our awesome customers and maintain a high performance driving record.
Each region nominates a number of drivers, up to 10, to compete in the Arrow Stage Lines’ Regional Driver Roadeo. Each nominee and participant must fulfill a number of qualifications, performance metrics, and safety measures. Drivers compete in a series of written exams, driving courses, maneuvering courses, and even how they present themselves in their uniform.
Based on the highest scores, top drivers will be selected from each region and awarded the opportunity to travel to Arrow Stage Lines’ Phoenix location to compete in the Arrow Stage Lines’ Driver Roadeo National Championship.
“This was such a fun event last year,” said Arrow Stage Lines’ COO, Luke Busskohl. “Arrow drivers have been looking forward to this event since last year. It gives them the chance to compete against the best of the best in the industry.”
The driver who gets the victory will bring the “Carl Busskohl Cup” back to their home region. The trophy is named in honor of Arrow’s founder, Carl Busskohl.
“It’s not as easy as some may think,” said Arrow Stage Lines’ Corporate Operations & Marketing Specialist, Alex Busskohl. “These are tough vehicles to operate, and these drivers need to know a lot more than just how to drive them.”
