School & Employee Bus Transportation

School & Employee Bus Transportation

Overview

The 2,600 school and employee bus transportation services in the US contract with public school districts, private schools, parents, colleges and universities, airports, and private businesses to provide bus and shuttle services for students and workers. About one-third of the over 13,500 public school districts in the US outsource student transportation services and that number is expected to grow.

Aging School Bus Fleets

Faced with tight budgets, school districts postpone replacing older buses in their fleet.

School Bus Driver Shortage

Many school districts and transportation contractors are having difficulty meeting demand for school bus drivers.
