Pennsylvania has one of the highest percentages of privately operated school bus fleets in the nation. Here are just a few reasons why over 80% of the school districts in Pennsylvania have chosen to contract with a private school bus operator for their school transportation.
- A school district can save money by utilizing a private school bus contractor for their busing needs. This is money that can be redirected to educational programs and staffing.
- Districts are freed from management headaches like absenteeism, drug testing, discipline, etc.
- School districts can upgrade or completely replace aged fleets by hiring a contractor without having to make any capital expenditures. This is because private contractors maintain new fleets and adhere to the strictest maintenance standards.
- Private school bus contractors maintain or exceed safety and training standards when it comes to their drivers and their fleet.
