ECU Transit takes first place in student driver competition

East Carolina University transit drivers celebrate their win in the East Coast Intercollegiate Rodeo March 31.

East Carolina University Transit claimed a first place win at the inaugural East Coast Intercollegiate Roadeo, March 31 at the University of Virginia.

The roadeo was a competitive test for students employed as campus transit bus operators. The roadeo measured drivers’ skills behind the wheel, knowledge of safety regulations and familiarity with the bus equipment. Scored test elements included left and right turns, passenger stops, parallel parking, alley dock backing, forward and reverse serpentine, offset lanes, diminishing clearance and a judgment stop.

Ten drivers from each participating university competed.

ECU drivers scored the highest overall, just six points over 2nd place University of Virginia, and brought home the custom-made trophy.

The event was hosted by the University of Virginia, with assistance from the University of Maryland.

  1. It’s appropriate time to make some plans for the future and it’s time to be happy.
    I have read this post and if I could I wish to suggest
    you some interesting things or tips. Maybe
    you could write next articles referring to this article.
    I want to read more things about it!

  2. My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find most of your post’s to be
    just what I’m looking for. Do you offer guest writers to write content available for
    you? I wouldn’t mind publishing a post or elaborating on many of
    the subjects you write about here. Again, awesome site!

  3. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and entertaining, and without
    a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which too few folks are speaking intelligently about.

    I’m very happy I came across this in my search
    for something regarding this.
