First Student Van Service
Giving districts tools that drive efficiency and help all students succeed
Add flexibility to your fleet and meet the needs of special population students
Many districts are faced with operational and fiscal challenges of transporting out-of-district students, students served by McKinney-Vento, and students with developmental disabilities or other special needs. Vans offer more than a ride to school— they offer safe, reliable transportation that can be transformative for your students. In fact, some of our students have made their very first friend on our vans.
