Student Transportation of America (STA) is celebrating 25 years of service today. Founded in 1997, STA now operates more than 16,000 vehicles, providing student transportation, management, logistics, and technology solutions to more than 300 school districts across the United States.
STA is actively working to reduce emissions. To date, STA has replaced more than 2,700 diesel-engine school buses with alternative-fuel vehicles, and has launched an electric vehicle pilot program.
Each STA driver is trained and educated on a variety of topics including Autism Spectrum Disorder awareness, special needs emergency evacuation plans, bullying, managing student behavior, and safety leadership.
"Today we celebrate our 25th anniversary with a nod to our history, but we also look to the future," said STA Chief Operating Officer Gene Kowalczewski. "Our success and longevity come from the dedication of our employees and a commitment across the company to innovation. We look forward to what the next 25 years will bring as we continuously work to provide the safest transportation for students, employment opportunities for communities, and sustainable transportation options for a healthy environment."
