Brock Ginman, 24, started working as a Transport Canberra fill-in bus driver in October.
Getting behind the wheel has been a joy for him.
"It's sort of been a childhood dream since I was about three," he said.
And he says it doesn't take long to get the hang of driving a bus.
"It's nowhere near as daunting as people think," he said.
"You get really comfortable with it. It becomes as comfortable as driving a car maybe even more so."
And his dream job was living up to his expectations.
"Really good," he said.
"There's been a lot of variety, which I love. Different buses and all kinds of different routes across Canberra. It's been a lot of fun."
