Riding the Transtar Bus to Work

The transportation schedule

The WDW transportation schedule:  It’s more like a wish than an actual schedule!

Yes, it’s true, in Florida Disney does provide free bus transportation for CPs from the housing complexes to the WDW property work locations.   You can even download the app (TranLoc) to track the bus that you are hoping to catch.

The app is incorrectly showing that the CP bus is in the middle of Friendship Lake at Epcot.

This is the bus that you catch to go to Walmart.

BUT, it comes with a price.  The buses can make you late to work by running late or not showing up at all.  At least once a month, a Transtar bus is involved in an accident.  Just this year, two Transtar buses have caught fire!

A bad day to be riding the bus!

The C bus catching fire in May 2015.  Everyone had to get off the bus and walk back to Vista Way.

The very next day, the E bus was involved in a car accident!

The very next day, the C3 bus was involved in a car accident outside Vista Way!  The blue car was totaled.

(Note:  At Disneyland in California, CPs are not provided with bus service and can use the city bus.  https://collinsrace1.wordpress.com/2015/02/13/the-disneyland-commuter-assistance-program-for-cps/)

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale by Elly Collins & Caroline Collins
We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.
We included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney.
Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
