Management & Staffing Services
CONTRACTOR MANAGEMENT
Our comprehensive contractor management approach encompasses four key elements: Resources, Oversight, Development, and Strategy.
MANAGEMENT OF SCHOOL DISTRICT OPERATIONS
We are different from contractors in that we do not own any buses. With this service, we manage, supervise and guide school districts to attain the best balance of safety, service, and cost.
MENTORSHIP
We utilize the expertise of our staff to bring a mentoring partnership to the leadership of your team, focused on maximizing the savings and customer service opportunities available to your department.
BUS DRIVER STAFFING SOLUTIONS
We can help your school bus driver shortage issues by developing a recruiting program and hiring, training and retaining drivers to supplement your current driver force.
Advisory Services
OPERATIONAL ASSESSMENTS
Our extensive operational assessments provide a roadmap to safe, high quality, cost-effective services.
BELL TIME CHANGE MANAGEMENT
Understanding the challenges associated with a bell time change is the foundation of our informative approach to managing this complicated process.
SCHOOL BUS ROUTING & SCHEDULING
We can help minimize the number of vehicles your school transportation program uses, while maximizing the way they are used.
INSOURCING & OUTSOURCING
Deciding on the most effective service delivery model for your school district is a complex analysis. We can help you make the best choice for your school district.

Owning and managing a fleet is a unique aspect for many school organizations. We can assist with critical aspects such as capital planning and financing, maintenance, and technology integration.
LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT
