ROW seeks to hire experienced drivers to provide safe, reliable transportation to ROW guests and employees. ROW drivers primarily operate full size school-style busses filled with guests and may include hauling a trailer stacked with rafts.

Drivers provide a quality first and last experience for ROW guests as they begin and end their trips. Drivers are responsible for daily inspection of vehicle and to maintain a safe and clean vehicle. Additional duties may include assisting guides with put-in and take-out of equipment. Drivers must have a CDL, a passenger endorsement and no airbrake restriction.
