School Bus Logistics

About Us

Our Experience

The Story

School Bus Logistics was created in 2010 to provide consulting and support to school district officials and school bus contracting companies. As school budgets get tighter and tighter with each year, budgets for transportation costs are being reduced. With more than 30 years of combined routing software experience and routing operations, we focus solely on pupil transportation routing and all the challenges routing can bring to a your district and the communities you serve.

Our offerings include full route management services, software training, school start support, route creation, boundary analysis, route optimization, bell time studies, and routing software evaluations.

 

 

 
We are committed to our clients’ success and we lead innovation within the school bus routing industry.
