“From a young teen, I knew I wanted a sustainable, independent life that I loved
but more importantly could afford. With limited options for someone with no
secondary education, only the transit industry presented that opportunity for me.
Despite me possessing zero driving skills at the time.
This didn’t put me down; instead, it fueled the fire that helped me persevere
through hurdles and challenges along the way. And with a patient trainer and
mentor guiding me, transit helped me live my dream life and changed my entire
For close to a decade, I excelled in my transit job, building more experience
,relationships and refining my skills. In 2020, I decided to spread my wings and
reach a broader audience with just how cool I thought driving a bus could be. I left
my transit job to establish Supir. A company focused on creating, recruiting and
staffing professional bus operators
At its core, Supir aims to be the national standard for accelerator programs that
transforms anyone into a professional bus driver. We equip students with
information, hands-on training and good etiquette that raises the bar in how bus
operators are viewed and enumerated. Additionally, we provide continuous
education and mentorship opportunities that keep our drivers up-to-date with
current norms, besides advancing their expertise and love for their skills. We
recognize that these are the missing links that render the industry incomplete. The
perception with which the stakeholders and community hold the industry needs to
change, and Supir is the catalyst.
By ensuring that bus drivers are professionally
trained and adequately equipped to offer genuine customer service, we are hopeful
of transforming the industry into one that is recognized, respected and embraced.
Above all, we aspire to inspire a genuine passion in bus driving and help our
students ultimately live independently and sustainably. We see it as empowering
them to find their purpose in life and succeed in it.
