    I have been working at Horizon Coach Lines part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Some good trips, friendly co workers. Equipment is safe to operate. Dispatchers are friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    Most of the equipment is outdated and in poor condition, buses that are 13 or more years old and driving them is a chore, drivers cockpit outdated, drivers seats broken. They have a few newer buses but these always go to the most senior drivers. Drivers paid on percentage basis of trip charge but the driver is not told what the trip charge was so no way to know if pay is correct or not. They tell us "take our word for it."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Assign buses to the trip, not the driver. Change pay scheme. Replace old, worn and outdated buses.
