Student Transportation of America, Inc. Key Developments

Student Transportation of America, Inc. Wins School Transportation Contract with the Pine-Richland School District

Student Transportation Inc. announced that its subsidiary, Student Transportation of America, Inc. (STA), has been awarded a new seven year school transportation contract with the Pine-Richland School District that serves three elementary schools, one middle school and one high school in northern Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The $3.7 million annual contract has the option of additional renewal years, includes 100% customer paid fuel and adds to the regional density of STA's extensive existing operations in Pennsylvania. The public-partnership will provide for seventy-seven school vehicles beginning in the 2015-16 school year. The new fleet will run on liquid propane gas (LPG) which is a cleaner-burning and more cost-effective alternative to diesel that contains lower levels of sulphur for reduced emissions. LPG vehicles are noticeably quieter as well.

Student Transportation of America, Inc. Wins New $6 Million Annual Contract

Student Transportation of America, Inc. (STA) has been selected and awarded a new $6 million annual contract with Mesa County Valley School District 51 in Grand Junction, Colorado to provide school transportation services. The initial five-year contract provides for customer paid fuel and includes the option of additional renewal years. The contract begins July 2015. The district is the 12th large in Colorado and serves 26 elementary schools, 8 middle schools and 5 high schools. STA will install and use new innovative routing software for improvement and efficiencies in the operation. STA will provide 140 brand new vehicles including 122 clean burning propane-fueled (LPG) vehicles and will be the young and large 'green fleet' of school vehicles in Colorado. The school district will provide the required facilities for maintenance and parking. Since Colorado is a leading state in the development and production of natural gas and related alternative fuels, the company's Innovation Team identified an incentive called the "Innovative Motor Vehicle and Alternative Fuel Vehicle Credit" which is available for qualifying motor vehicles such as LPG. As a result of the Colorado state tax incentive, the company was able to lower the total cost of their proposal to the school district. This will be the first operation in Colorado for STA, however, the company has vast experience launching successful, large-scale operations in new regions across North America. STA currently operates similar size contracts in Los Angeles, Milwaukee, Omaha and Meridian, Idaho. Current STA customers overwhelmingly supported and recommended the contract award to the company. As an added feature the district agreed to equip the vehicles with the new SafeStop mobile application that connects parents and school officials with vehicles transporting their students. The innovative app features a real-time bus locator with a mapping screen, predictive arrival times and a messaging area to display service updates to let parents and students know where the bus is and when it will be at the designated stops.
