Methode used cross sectional study, The analysis used the Chi-square statistical test with the alternative using Fisher's test because the variables studied were on an ordinal scale and used extra than businesses of unpaired samples, Sampling on this study turned into executed with the aid of using easy random sampling. The researcher randomly 30 drivers. The results of bivariate analysis the use Fisher's test have been carried out to decide among income and the incidence of work stress in the bus driver, obtained  p value of 0.016. The p value is much less than 0.05 (p value <0.05), and length of work obtained p vaue 0.01  it is able to be interpreted that there is a relationship between income and working periode factors with the incidence of work stress on the bus driver at Bahurekso Kendal terminal.
