    After careful consideration I’ve decided to go the solo route and go with USA. The main Reason I change my mind was that Roadtex was not going to pay For my transportation to orientation and they were going to take my hotel stay out of my first check. Also there’s not even a direct bus line to their home terminal and when I asked them about that today they gave me the runaround saying they would talk to me about it on Monday. Also they stated that there may not be a trainer available for me on Friday so I would have to go back home and come back on my own dime. Very unprofessional. USA truck on the other hand is paying for my transportation to get to Ohio And they are paying for my hotel room and I go right out on the road with the trainer that Friday. I know quite a few drivers here have gone with USA truck before and I was curious what was your experience with the company? Anyhow I leave Connecticut on a Greyhound at 12 noon and I’ll be in Ohio by 8 AM the following day thanks for all your help and wish me luck

    Watch your luggage closely on that bus.
    People steal luggage from where it's stored underneath the bus.
    Keep you valuables with you at your seat.

    Drove for USA Truck for 2 and a half yars. They aren't. a bad outfit if your a veteran driver. The Ohio terminal was my terminal. Its been about 6 years, but I can try to answer any questions just let know. Good luck.

    Very wise decision. Greyhound sucks!!!!! Best of luck to you at USA.


    The best advice that I received from my trainer:

    If someone who knows more than you is talking, eyes and ears open, mouth closed, even if you think they’re full of poop.
