In his new role, Cade is responsible for providing vision and leadership for maintenance initiatives across the organization.

“Jim’s experience in the field speaks volumes,” said Charlie Bruce, chief operating officer. “He knows what needs to be done, and goes out and does it. Our vehicles will continue to be highly maintained while operating as one of the safest fleets you’ll find anywhere. Our schoolchildren are in great hands.”
