Is it possible or good idea for an autistic adult with a CDL to drive buses involving passengers of any kind for the county or Greyhound?

weighing 26,001 pounds, or 10,001 pounds with any type of trailer towed
transports quantities of hazardous materials that require warning placards under Department of Transportation regulations
that is designed to transport 16 or more passengers (including driver) or
more than 8 passengers (including the driver), for compensation.
This includes, but is not limited to, tow trucks, tractor trailers, and buses.
Interstate drivers of vehicles over 10,001 pounds, but less than 26,001 pounds (not transporting hazmat) need a medical card and Driver Qualification File, but do not need a CDL
