String Orchestra Specialist

at Bishop Dunne Catholic School in Dallas, TX

This is just a quick note to say thank you to our bus driver, Katherine, for taking such good care of us on the recent Bishop Dunne Orchestra trip to Lubbock. She was great at finding places for us to unload/load quickly, and providing the children a great and good experience visiting a university and professional musicians.

Masters Student at Southern Methodist University, Class of 2018

I am writing to recommend SMU bus driver Larry Mauldin, whom I have known for almost a year. I have ridden SMU Express for three years and I have met all kinds of bus drivers. I can confidently say Larry is one of the best drivers I ever rode with. Not only because he has great driving skills, but also his personality. I have hardly seen any drivers make friends with their riders, but Larry really does. He warmly greets you when you get on and kindly says goodbye when you get off. Riding a bus can be boring, but Larry really makes these 20 minutes a pleasant journey.
