Safety

A Leader in School Bus Transportation

Safety is critical to the services we provide and it is a pillar in our commitment to our customers and communities. We believe that proper safety is an ongoing effort, and our drivers receive annual safety training that includes classroom learning along with behind-the-wheel instruction as well as in-service training and additional educational opportunities. 

We perform regular safety and compliance audits at our facilities, reviewing more than 100 different topics and interviewing personnel to evaluate their knowledge of STA’s safety policies and to see the practices at work.

We implement secure, digital platforms for our driver screening and compliance processes with built-in company safety standards to systematically evaluate candidates, and to ensure employee credentialing is always up-to-date. We hold mandatory monthly safety meetings, and support a variety of safety campaigns and initiatives throughout the year. 

As a leader in school bus transportation, we will never compromise the care or safety of our passengers.

Addressing the COVID-19 Pandemic

The safety and protective measures needed to slow the spread of COVID-19 have taken an unprecedented toll on the nation’s education system and the transportation services that support it.

Student Transportation of America, and our entire Family of Companies, is dedicated to the health and safety of our employees, passengers, and customers, while remaining committed to ensuring that we can safely continue critical business processes and operations. We are actively monitoring and respectfully following the safety guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as other federal, state, provincial, and local governing bodies.

Guidance from this approach has framed the policies, procedures, and protocols we are implementing to protect the health of our workforce and customers.

Circumstances surrounding COVID-19 continue to evolve and change. We are fully committed to adapt and implement changes in order to continue providing our communities with the level of first-class safety and service for which our company is known while maintaining a high confidence for all of our employees.
