This page provides information regarding the many advantages of using a school bus contractor. It also serves as a resource to school districts and taxpayers by providing, among other tings, a cost-savings analysis tool to help school districts conduct a financial analysis of their transportation services.
The public-private partnership between our schools and school bus contractors is one of the most successful examples of government and the private sector working together. We provide a great public benefit while saving hundreds of millions of tax dollars every year.
New York school bus contractors provide student transportation services to more than 63% of the children riding a yellow bus each day. We help more than half of the school districts in New York State focus on what they do best – educate our children.
Our success is based on three simple principles…student safety, taxpayer savings and customer satisfaction.
