The driver must also perform a passenger stop, ensuring proper distance from the curb and practicing the best hospitality in greeting and boarding the passenger.

There are also cones shaped in a ‘V’ which drivers must enter driving 20 mph while ensuring they have remained clear of every cone.

“This is basically what you do every day,” Aylmer said. “It is what you should strive to do every day.”

And as Aylmer provides an example for his fellow drivers at Gulf Transportation, he has also built a reputation among the many contestants at the Florida Paratransit Roadeo.

A wall of plaques at Gulf Transportation serves as a reminder of why.
