Increasing Driver Satisfaction in Public Transportation: Why a new approach is needed

Increasing Driver Satisfaction

According to a recent survey, almost 80% of bus industry professionals say the driver shortage is one of their greatest challenges.

An aging workforce, the pandemic, driver fatigue, a need for more flexible schedules, coupled with competition from delivery services and higher paying jobs from other types of transportation providers such as long haul trucking are exacerbating the problem.

“Higher pay alone won’t solve the problem”, said Sergio Soares, CEO of Transdev, Portugal and Spain during the panel webinar “Public Transportation in 2022: How to Adapt to Changing Paradigms and Priorities“.
