A cover letter is a vital part of a paratransit driver’s resume. It not only gives you a chance to introduce your candidacy in a favorable light but also provides a platform for selling your core driving competencies.
Candidates sometimes underestimate the importance of this document and simply rehash their resumes.
However, a cover letter is a golden opportunity to personalize with your future employer and it must be drafted very carefully.

Mr. Robert Greyson

Chicago, IL 89669
Dear Mr. Greyson:
Your advertisement for a paratransit driver calls for the similar abilities I have acquired through my 9+ years’ hands-on experiences in the driving arena. With my current class B driver’s license and safe driving record, I will be able to contribute significantly.
As an expert in map reading and GPS navigation, I bring a track record of reducing fuel costs for my previous employers massively through intelligent route setting and the implementation of cost-effective vehicle acceleration protocols. My previous company’s clients had been satisfied by my driving skills and wheelchairs enter/exit assistance expertise. My name made it to the ‘most-asked for’ driver’s list for 3 consecutive years owing to excellent my professionalism, empathy, and compassion while driving clients with special needs.
Moreover, I offer skills in route setting, swift radio response, and operation of specially installed equipment in vehicles for mobility support of disabled clients.
I look forward to meeting with you soon in order to discuss your needs in relation to my expertise. I will follow up on my application after a few days. Thank you for your time and consideration.
