It is our privilege and top priority to provide safe and reliable transportation to the families who rely on our service. Our commitment to you is to safely transport each student every single day. Anything less is unacceptable.
Our drivers, monitors, mechanics and staff join our team because of their dedication to student safety. They work tirelessly to ensure school buses remain the safest way for students to get to and from school.
Advances in technology and safety features have also made school buses safer than ever. First Student led the industry by installing advanced tools such as GPS systems, crossing gates and Child Check-Mate® on buses. First Student drivers typically complete more than 50 hours of training before driving passengers, which is more than the Federal Aviation Administration requires of student pilots. As a result of this commitment to safety, First Student buses are twice as safe as the industry average.
I want to thank you for your continued trust and support. We remain focused on ensuring students, parents and your district love the bus every school day.
