SCHOOL DISTRICTS: FirstLine, ReNew, and Crescent City Schools
DISTRICT SIZE: 9,500 students
FLEET SIZE: 140

Our first out-of-region contract and cooperative operation, FirstLine schools believes every child should be able to go to a great school of their choice, and we’re proud to help make that mission a reality.

They need to get students spread across a broad area to five open-enrollment charter schools on time without making sacrifices in quality equipment or drivers. Our initial contract with FirstLine was so successful that two other districts soon joined.

Because of the way that Apple Bus is able to organize routes and the efficiency they can gain, the overall cost is significantly lower.

To prepare for an extremely harsh winter climate in a district spread out over 25,000 square miles, we have equipped each school bus with advanced, real-time GPS, instant tire chains, studded tires, and additional engine block heaters, insulation, and lighting.

The unique two-tier busing system we developed reduces the number of buses by six and saves the district nearly $600,000 a year.

They’re concerned about the safety of our students to the point that they are actually building buses to a higher standard than we require them to.

FLEET SIZE: 72

One of the fastest growing cities in America, Austin and its ever-expanding suburbs make it challenging to keep up with infrastructure changes. Constant construction means we need to make routine route changes to keep everything running as smoothly and efficiently as possible. By using cutting-edge tools for logistics and focusing on driver retention, we bring KIPP-Austin and Austin Achieve the best transportation program in the area.

The transition was seamless. The support and communication was constant, and the improvement in performance was literally immediate. I would absolutely recommend Apple Bus to any school in need.
