DART challenged us to test our abilities and navigate a 40-foot bus through an obstacle course at the Iowa State Fairgrounds Thursday.

Why it matters: You could give the bus a spin yourself.

  • DART is trying to hire about 35 more drivers and is offering up to $3,000 sign-on incentives. Starting wages range between $17-25/hour.

⏰ Details: Try it out Friday 1-5pm and Saturday 8-10:30am at the fairgrounds. (Enter through the gates off University Ave.)

  • Bring your license. Drivers must be at least 21.

💬 Our thought bubble: We had so much fun, but may need a little more training...
