If you are a bus driver for a school district I assume that the school bus route is given you by the district. The same holds true for for your employer. I would assume that he or she would set the route for you.

If you are required to set up your bus route route directions for work then under the laws of all states in this country you should be paid for your time in doing so since such work is directly related to your job.
