First Student Partners with Buffalo School District, NY

Partner with First Student and you’ll get:

Local Drivers and Staff

We take pride in hiring and empowering local people who have as much passion as you do about the safety and care of your students. The drivers and management teams we put in place are members of your community, and with operations facilities located on or near your school district properties, you have complete access to your local operations team.

Bus Ownership and Leasing

When it comes to buses, you have choices. Want to own your own buses, or sell them to us for immediate capital replacement? You can do either. You can also buy new buses through us or lease First Student buses, which provides another option for upgrading without the cost of ownership.

Cutting-Edge Technology

Safety is paramount, which is why we’re constantly adopting the latest technologies that allow you to ensure the safety of all your students. From bus-tracking apps to GPS, our technologies help you keep track of everything, and in real time.

Expert Support Network

Your locally based, knowledgeable team will have the power of a nationally supported network of resources, providing support for everything from routing and maintenance, to training and recruiting.
