A covering letter is a vital part of a paratransit driver 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 resume.
However, a cover letter is a golden opportunity to personalize with your future employer and it must be drafted very carefully.

Dear Mr. Greyson:
Your advertisement for a paratransit driver calls for the abilities I have acquired through my 9+ years’ hands-on experiences in driving arena. A detailed look at my resume will confirm that my profile fits your job description perfectly.
Being 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 implementation of cost effective vehicle acceleration protocols. The 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 thanks to excellent demonstration of professionalism, empathy and compassion while driving clients with special needs.
I am confident that Transdev will be definitely benefited from my 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.
