Writing a recommendation is perhaps the biggest favor that you can do for a bus driver who is looking for a new job – and is depending on your word to vouch for him or her. But before you agree to write a recommendation, make sure that you know that person who has asked for a recommendation. While most employers do not actually call the reference who was provided a recommendation, some companies will call to verify if you have written the recommendation, and to gauge if what you have written, rings true.
If the person who is asking for a recommendation is someone you have worked with or supervised, you will know exactly how well he or she operates in a professional environment. The purpose of a recommendation letter is to provide credence to the person’s claim of being suitable for a job, and getting along well the people from different walks of life. Since the recommendation letter is a “positive” document, you need to highlight the individual’s good points and refrain from writing anything negative.
Typically, a recommendation letter is a To Whom It May Concern document, unless you know who will be reading it. Here is a sample that you can follow:

To Whom It May Concern
I am writing this letter of recommendation for Paul White who has served as Bus Driver for ABC Company for over 10 years. As a bus driver Paul is a complete professional – as a human being, I know no one who is kinder.
Since the day that Paul joined my organization, I have had little to worry about as far as the route and timings of my buses are concerned. He has singlehandedly managed to oversee activities of all 20 drivers that drive my buses on 44 different routes. Even though it is not technically his duty to so this, he felt it was his duty, being the oldest member of my team. His navigation skills are as sharp on a standard map as they are on the GPS, and I have never had any cause for concern as far as the safety of passengers or luggage is concerned.
Paul’s extraordinary ability to get along with people from all walks of life, adults and children alike, is perhaps what makes his run the most popular one in the company. I give him my highest recommendation without reservation. If you need any further information regarding him, please feel free to contact me.
