Who We Are

Compassion is Key

We believe that compassion is key – from what is under the hood of our vehicles, to who sits behind the wheel. Above all else, we are dedicated to fostering environments that support the 1.25 million students we transport each day and nurturing a company culture that creates a sense of family and empowerment with employees that are proud to come to work each day and help get children to school safely.

STA Family of Companies

STA Family of Companies

A key to our growth is the partnerships made through successful acquisitions and conversions of locally-owned or publicly-operated fleets into STA transportation systems. Immense value is placed on maintaining the relationships that were built over years of service to the local community. From Ocean State Transit and Annapolis Bus in the north to GoldStar Transit and Dairyland Group in the central region, and onward towards the West Coast, we value the relationships and legacies established by our locally operating businesses – the STA Family of Companies.

Leadership Team

With industry experience that averages more than 25 years, Student Transportation of America’s management team brings an unparalleled level of knowledge and operational expertise to the school districts we serve. The team has proven itself by successfully growing the business through a strategic and disciplined acquisition, bid, and conversion program. STA & STC leaders are poised to seize additional opportunities and continue to grow the business.
