You arent "just a bus driver"

Too often people think that driving a bus is your career’s last stop when in actuality it’s the first.

Patrick Parents

CEO Of Go Supir

My story

Always having a business spirit, transit provided me with a way to be my own investor early on. Up until 9/2020 Supir as well as all of my other businesses were all funded from my job.

Split shifts allowed me to literally run my business in the middle of the day while still getting paid. I had belonged to a state-owned transit agency, this allowed me to meet a lot of cool people, some of whom would become clients. The relationships I got from “just driving the bus” still pay dividends to this day.

I’ve met multiple CEOs and Governors, most of whom I can Facetime at any moment. All because I drive buses well.
