Added DiffLines:

->''"There's only one person authorized to transport superheroes: Ron Wilson--bus driver. And I'm Ron Wilson, bus driver!"''
-->-- '''Ron Wilson, bus driver''', ''Film/SkyHigh2005''


Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/SkyHigh2005'''s Ron Wilson, the resident SuperheroSchool's bus driver. He hangs around to drive the kids to school and plays an important part of the climax, but is absent from the schoolwide shenanigans for the most part.
* ''Film/Deadpool2016'' and ''Film/Deadpool2'' have Dopinder, a taxi driver Wade frequently recruits to transport him to his sketchier jobs within the city. By the sequel Dopinder has realized that he finds being just a cab driver unfulfilling and wants to become a badass.

* The Bus Driver, [[spoiler:Nurari]], from ''Manga/RosarioToVampire''. Although this is seemingly just one of his roles, mostly what he does is drive the students around so they can have their own adventures. (As good as [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] at least a couple times with "Huh? why did he just drive us here and then leave?" reaction.)

* In ''Literature/ArmadilloFists'', this is Tony's role in [[TheMafia the organisation.]] He subverts the trope description by actually being one of the story's main characters, though. [[MundaneMadeAwesome The fact that his world has giant robotic dinosaurs instead of cars probably helps in sexing up his job description to main-character levels.]]

* ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'' has two. Vice Granscenic is the helicopter of Riot Force 6 and brings the cast to their missions. The reason he's a pilot? He was once a [[FriendlySniper sniper]], who accidently shot a hostage, his little sister Laguna, in the eye and that event traumatized him to quit his sniper career. He also serves as [[TheGunslinger Teana Lanster]] and [[BridgeBunnies Alto Krauetta's]] BigBrotherMentor and is a friend of [[LadyOfWar Signum]]. But when he's hospitalized after the destruction of the Long Arch, he's replaced by his [[SenpaiKohai kohai]] Alto, a member of the BridgeBunnies who always wanted to be a helicopter pilot. She's a good friend of Subaru and the other Forwards and later becomes one of [[Manga/MagicalRecordLyricalNanohaForce Thoma Avenir's]] many CoolBigSis figures. Vice gets better during the GrandFinale of ''[=StrikerS=]'' and he not only continues his helicopter pilot career, but also his sniper career, and Alto has become an official helicopter pilot as well and serves as Special Duty Section 6's helicopter pilot.
