Managing Student Transportation
Returning time, energy and resources to the classroom
Everything You Want From A Transportation Partner. And More.
Partnering with First Student provides districts, parents and students with the best start and finish to every school day.
Safety is at the heart of everything we do. With the safest drivers behind the wheel, we meet federal and state standards and often exceed state minimums.
Through structured assessments of community specific needs, your district will receive routes that are optimized, safe, tracked, and on-time.
We offer preventative maintenance and regular fleet replacements, vehicle pre- and post-checks, buying power, and advanced technology. Looking to take your fleet green? We can help you there too.
From wages, administrative costs, and capital to preventative maintenance and routing solutions, districts benefit from fixed-price agreements and enhanced efficiencies.
“We Know We’re Going To Have Clean, Well-Maintained Buses. Courteous, Well-Trained Drivers. And, Kids Picked Up On Time.”
– Dr. John Toleno | UMASD Superintendent
