Lee King also reminded everyone to be considerate and tip our bus drivers. On a recent trip the driver received an average of 79 cents per person. The drivers are volunteers and the tips are their compensation. Please consider $2.50 per person. Remember this is almost the price of 1 gallon of gas. We don’t want to lose our drivers. They plan the route, clean and maintain the busses, fill them with gas, before you step on to enjoy your trip.
