(Fayetteville, N.C.) – Paula Bowers, a bus driver for the Fayetteville Area System of Transit (FAST), placed second at the North Carolina Public Transit Association statewide bus roadeo Sunday. Bowers won second place in the Light Transit Vehicle (LTV) category, which had 19 participants. Bowers also was first place at FAST’s local roadeo , held May 6, in the LTV category.
Roadeo competitions test the skills and knowledge of bus operators. The contest challenges drivers to keep their skills current and encourages continued mastery of all aspects of equipment operation and best safety practices.
“I am so proud of Paula for being dedicated to her profession and providing quality transit services to the citizens of Fayetteville,” FAST Director Randy Hume said. “It's a pleasure working with Paula and she is one of the reasons FAST has continued to improve services over the last few years. Congratulations to Paula!”
Bowers and other FAST local roadeo event winners will be recognized at the May 29 City Council meeting.
