Student Transporation Opens Two New Facilities In Riverside, California

Wall, NJ – July 30, 2007 – Student Transportation of America Ltd. (“STA”) (TSX: STB.UN) announced today that it has signed new leases on two facilities to better serve its largest customer in Riverside, California. The facilities are expected to improve operating and financial performance for the Company’s single largest contract.

“Having two facilities situated in strategic sections of the district will enable us to properly stage our drivers for their routes which will reduce excess hours as well as lower our maintenance expense considerably”, said Denis Gallagher, CEO of STA.

STA had to operate in an alternative, non traditional manner during last school year in Riverside which caused unanticipated higher operating costs due to the lack of suitable facilities in the district. The Company has recently completed the first of a five year contract with the Riverside Unified School District in California.

“Our staff is excited about the new facilities and have scheduled an Open House this month for local school officials”, Gallagher added. “This year’s summer school program has been a tremendous success and larger than last year. Currently we are busy preparing for the opening of the regular school season slated for late August.”
