Executive Summary

Buses are used for a variety of transportation purposes from carrying school children to providing public transportation services. Bus mechanics are specially trained mechanics that provide the necessary maintenance and repairs on many different types of buses. Bus mechanics must have at least a high school diploma, but most employers prefer applicants with formal training. Many colleges and vocational and technical schools offer programs in diesel engine repair. Prospective bus mechanics often complete courses in mathematics, machine shop, electronics, and automobile repair. Employment of bus mechanics is expected to grow slower than average for all professions, increasing 6% from 2008 to 2018. The growing population and increased need for a variety of buses will create some job growth.
