Each year the Chester County Transportation Association holds an annual school bus driver safety competition. Drivers sign up and compete in multiple driving events, bus defect identification and a written test. Drivers are scored in all events and ranked individually during the day. The top 10 drivers in the county earn a spot to compete at the state safety competition in State College, PA in June. The top 4 drivers from the state competition earn a spot at the international competition that is held each July.
Drivers for Downingtown have placed as a team:
