First Student’s Managed Services offering enables customers to continue to own their school bus fleet and facilities while partnering with First Student to manage day-to-day operations, including routing, dispatch, scheduling, maintenance and more. To support your district’s success, we can provide enhanced technologies and routing studies, as well as manage driver staffing and training, purchasing or leasing.
Our Managed Services model provides you the experience and knowledge of a skilled transportation manager and maintenance staff. Together, we will set key operational performance metrics that support your transportation objectives. We can also manage all reporting for formula-based funding and Medicare reimbursement to maximize your returns.
This collaborative approach enables school districts to balance a desire to maintain ownership of their fleet and facilities with the need to access industry best practices, support and training.
