Student safety begins with a well-maintained fleet
A strong fleet maintenance program is critical to success
First Student’s maintenance program is centered in quality control, data capture, and work efficiency. We’ve developed preventative maintenance schedules and vehicle pre- and post-check procedures that ensure every First Student vehicle on the road is ready for a safe journey to and from school. Advanced technology, industry-best training, skill testing, and our relationships with equipment manufacturers allow us conduct research for continuous improvement and identify solutions for complex repairs.
