DATTCO Ensures Smooth School Bus Operations for the New School Year

We are dedicated to ensuring safe and efficient school bus transportation for thousands of students each day. With the new school year on the horizon, we have been hard at work over the summer months, preparing meticulously to meet the needs of our communities.

“Our most precious cargo is the children we transport. We understand the immense responsibility that comes with it,” remarked Douglas Eddy, DATTCO’s maintenance director. “We take pride in being entrusted with America’s future.”

One of the critical aspects of our preparation process is route planning. In July, we received master lists from school districts containing the names of students who will be riding our school buses. This information allows us to craft customized routes that cater to the specific needs of each district and its students.

To ensure the reliability of our school buses, our maintenance department conducts thorough inspections on each bus six times a year. These comprehensive inspections, cover every aspect of the vehicle to guarantee its roadworthiness.

As we gear up for the new school year, DATTCO remains committed to providing reliable, safe, and efficient transportation services to the communities we serve. With our dedication to preparation, innovation, and excellence, we are ready to embark on another successful academic year.
