Medicine Hat’s Transit drivers were showing off their road skills at the Stampede grounds today.

The first Bus Road-eo in more than a decade was held in the city in a fun event for the drivers.

Transit lead hand Allan Kelcher says the course is well designed with everyday skills.

Kelcher says, “So, we’re going to have eight obstacles.  Anything from passenger pickups, lane changes, and reversing, which we don’t normally do.  So, we’re going to test the distance of the driver backing up to a certain spot.  You know it’s going through normal, every day stuff that we do.”

Kelcher hopes this can become a more regular event for the drivers.
