By overseeing routing as needed, bus maintenance, driver recruitment and training, Durham grants each district the opportunity to refocus their efforts on students and away from student transportation.
At Durham, safety is always our top priority. From our students to our team members, we put safety at the forefront of everything we do. This is supported by our extensive employee training programs, monthly safety meetings and daily routine procedures, including pre-and post-inspection of all operated buses, preventive maintenance and child checks. Our commitment to safety is unmatched as we strive to surpass industry standards and deliver excellence.
According to the National School Transportation Association (NSTA), outsourcing is the most efficient and cost-effective solution while maintaining the highest levels of safety and reliable service. Additionally, it provides a district an average savings of 10 to 30 percent in transportation costs, which can be reinvested into other areas, such as additional educational programs, school supplies and more.
