Our Drivers are the Heart of Our Business

Our drivers are the heart of our business. The selection process is stringent with the first qualification being their empathy for others. Our drivers have compassion for all of our clients. Riding with UTS is not just a trip, it is an enjoyable event where the clients feel safe and secure. We hire "the personality" and then train them to be compliant with all laws and contract specifications.

Hiring Process - UTS relies on a screening policy that includes:

• Job descriptions

All these are combined with positive reinforcement of successful performance including awards, bonus programs, and opportunities for promotion.
