ST. CLOUD, MN (KNSI) - St. Cloud Metro Bus drivers will get a chance to show off their skills today as nearly 20 drivers will compete in the "Metro Bus Rodeo."

Drivers are scored on their ability to navigate through an obstacle course of orange road cones with a time limit testing various real-life driving scenarios. Two winners from the Fixed Route and Dial-A-Ride Divisions qualify to compete in the Minnesota Bus Rodeo later this summer.  Drivers that win at the state level, they're eligible for national competition.

Today's local event runs from 1 to 4 pm in the K-Lot at St. Cloud State University.
