Managed Transportation

What is a Managed Transportation Contract?

  • Allows your school district to continue to own its fleet and facilities while we manage operations, driver recruiting and training, safety, vehicle maintenance, insurance and routing/scheduling.
  • Often coupled with a tax exempt Municipal Leasing Program, which allows you to purchase vehicles at industry-leading rates and secure very low, affordable financing.
If you would like to continue owning your school bus fleet and facilities, Student Transportation of America can provide a "managed transportation" service that covers all day-to-day operations such as dispatch, routing and scheduling, driver training and staffing, maintenance, and more. This is considered a hybrid approach where schools maintain ownership of the assets, but benefit from our operations expertise. Our team will work closely with you every day to create a transportation system that is truly effective and truly yours.

In this arrangement, we will help you purchase new vehicles using our Municipal Leasing Program. This program provides school districts with a new source of capital for equipment purchases from third parties such as national leasing companies and banks. The district leases the equipment at a lower cost than traditional financing alternatives through a special tax incentive program offered to municipalities and school districts.
