If you’re considering a career in school bus services, are simply exploring your options, or you’re even a school administrator looking for a school bus contractor, you might think that all group transportation services function the same way. After all, they all serve the same purpose, which is to get a group of people from point A to point B safely and on time. That’s all you need in a student transportation services provider and all you seek from your job description, right?

While other providers of group transportation services might work this way, at American Student Transportation are proud to say that we’re different. We know through high-quality bus rides, that we can make transportation services so much more than “from point A to point B.” We’ve been in this business for multiple generations. We’ve seen how satisfied our service methodology leaves our customers and how our work culture acts to create career fulfillment. We understand that making an impact on our clients in this industry really requires that we do things differently from the rest.

So what’s our secret? How has “doing it differently” enabled us to provide the highest tier of customer care possible for a provider of school bus services for decades? Why does it make us a good employer? We go into what kind of different drives us as a bus company below.

Different Doesn’t Mean Bad

When it comes to hiring a service in which reliability is a priority, you might feel a little nervous at first about a service provider that “does things differently.” That’s understandable. When searching for these types of services, like when you’re looking for new school bus contractors, you want to know exactly what you’re getting because consistent work is important. It might feel a little risky investing in something that’s “different” from what you’re used to seeing, simply because you might worry about what kinds of standards your chosen company holds itself to.

Likewise, if you’re searching for employment, you might hesitate at applying for a company that is unique in its field. For one, you might wonder if your skill-set fits the job description, and you might also be concerned about what the company’s workplace culture is like. “Doing things differently” can mean any number of things, so how are you to know if the company is a good kind of different?

While we at American Student Transportation recognize these initial concerns, we’re here to tell you all about what sets our service apart, which is what makes us different. Rest assured, it’s all good things. Those in need of school bus contractors, those searching for employment, and even those discovering how to become a bus driver all can appreciate how our differences make us one of the best student transportation services around.
