All new drivers receive 20 hours of classroom training and at least 16 hours of on-the-road training before they begin working. On average, TransNet's Risk Management Director conducts training sessions in 2-3 week intervals. All existing drivers receive refresher courses in Defensive Driving and CPR.

Additional Driver Requirements

TransNet's policies include a comprehensive background check on each new potential employee. Before employees are hired, a criminal history, FBI finger printing, motor vehicle reports and child abuse checks are obtained and a pre-employment drug test is conducted to ascertain eligibility for employment.


In addition, on an ongoing basis, TransNet's mandatory drug and alcohol policy requires that all drivers submit to drug testing on a random, post-accident, and reasonable suspicion basis. A total of 50% of all employees are tested annually. Driver Motor Vehicle Records (MVRs) are updated every year.
