Betty joined Flagship Trailways in July of 2015. She came from a school bus background and “quickly became one of our very best charter drivers,” Tom Said.

He said Betty has an exemplary record with no violations at all on her record. “It was her first time at the event and she did very well in the UMA Driver Competition!”

Betty also was a participant on a driver round-table discussion at UMA and “did an excellent job there as well”.

“She is a hard worker, always up for a challenge and a very special lady, indeed. We are lucky to have her!”

 

In order to qualify for the 2019 UMA driver championship competition, just held at the UMA EXPO in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., drivers must have at least two years of driving with no chargeable accidents and no moving violations on their MVR.
