Student Transportation Inc. Employees Rally to Raise Awareness About Bullying
Leading Student Transportation Provider Continues its Anti-Bullying Efforts by Raising Awareness in the Communities Which It Serves
WALL, N.J., Oct. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Student Transportation Inc. (STI), an industry leader in school bus transportation, safety and fleet services, is kicking off its 8th annual Anti-Bullying Awareness Month today with its ‘I Support a Bully-Free Bus’ by raising awareness in the communities which it serves.
“We truly care about the 1.25 million passengers we transport to and from school daily and passengers should feel safe and secure on the school bus,” stated Shelly Hall, the Company’s Vice President of Safety. “We strive to have our vehicles not only be a safe zone but allow for a setting that is calm and enjoyable for all onboard. Anti-Bullying Awareness Month is a great opportunity to highlight what we do year-round to prevent bullying and work with community leaders to raise awareness.”
STI’s family of companies throughout North America will be partnering with the communities which it serves during the month starting with its annual tradition of having drivers, dispatchers, mechanics and others wear blue shirts today as a symbol of unity taking a stance against bullying.
“At STI we feel that Blue Shirt Day is an important day because it allows us to show our students, parents, school officials, and community members that we are adamant about not allowing any form of bullying to take place on or off the school bus,” added Hall.
In addition to Blue Shirt Day, awareness-raising activities will be hosted at the Company’s more than 170 locations. School officials, law enforcement personnel, safety-based community organizations and others will also take part conducting meetings and giving presentations on the subject. While STI puts an emphasis on bullying prevention during October, the Company continues to be an industry-leader in anti-bullying awareness and prevention education throughout the entire year.
