Student transportation provider First Student has obtained all required regulatory approvals necessary to close its pending acquisition of Total Transportation Corp. (TTC), a leading provider of general and special education student transportation, paratransit, and charter services throughout New York City, Upstate New York and Philadelphia, according to a news release.
Originally announced in May, the acquisition marks a significant step forward in First Student's growth with the addition of significant service offerings in the Northeast.
"We welcome TTC to the First Student family," said First Student CEO and President John Kenning. "Joining forces with TTC will create greater value for customers and employees. It will enable us to enhance our industry-leading service and commitment to provide the best start and finish to the school day for the school districts and families we serve. We are proud to be the most chosen student transportation provider in North America."
"We are pleased to be a part of the First Student team and build on our companies' shared mission of providing dependable transportation services," said TTC CEO Agostino Vona. "First Student's robust investments in cutting-edge technology, driver training, and fleet electrification will help our employees drive even more progress in our communities. Now part of the First Student family, we are eager to continue the work entrusted to us by school districts, parents, and many others across the region."
