Twenty-four bus drivers, with more than two years of experience in the job, were interviewed. Open questions allowed the free expression of the meanings of trafficking for these workers.


Daily life was considered stressful and responsible for changes in the health and mood of the drivers interviewed. The two categories that emerged were the facts that traffic is surprising and emotional balance at work is essential.


The driver’s health is the driving force for the transport service. Physical limitations are not directly related to the practice of this work activity. It is of utmost importance to remember that the matter of the road needs positive conditions to move the city on a daily basis.
