Durham School Services, National Express School’s (NEXS’s) first and largest student transportation brand, was originally founded in 1917 as a special education transportation provider for the owner’s wheelchair-bound child. Several of the NEXS brands were also established by parents of children with special needs. Many of our employees have a special place in their hearts for children with special needs, whether it is their own child or the child of a family member. This personal experience provides a foundation for the understanding and empathy these children require to feel safe and have positive experiences. Our specialization has helped us to nurture a unique commitment to quality service that has remained throughout our company. Today, Durham is responsible for getting more than one million students, 100,000 of which are those with special needs, to and from school each day.
