Supporting her assertion that it is a hard job, Fox explained that one has to run a daily check on the bus to ensure it is in good condition for the day's work.
“However, driving a bus is not that much more complicated than driving a car.
“You do have to be more careful, given the length and weight of a bus, as well as the responsibility you have to your passengers.
“We have our daily checks that have to be completed, checking everything to make sure the bus is OK for service."
What she loves about the job
While revealing that some customers had inappropriately remarked that she wore too much make-up, called her fat or said she had too much lip filler, the 24-year-old stated that she does have some good customers.
She narrated how one of her disabled customers gifted her a small wine.
Fox said the fascinating thing about her job is being able to see different parts of the world.
The Sun reports that the young mum starts the day's job by 1pm after taking her daughter to the nursery.
Female student who makes ends meet as a bus driver
A female student who makes a living as a bus driver had stated that some people do not patronize her because she is a lady.
She took to bus driving during the lockdown as her quest to get a means of making an income led her to its doorsteps.
She described her experience so far as tough and challenging particularly gender discrimination she faces on the job. According to her, male drivers usually throw tantrums at her.
In her words:
"Some drivers look down on me or even throw tantrums at me because I am a lady.
"I face discrimination from passengers as well as some won't enter because a lady is driving."
