THE STATE OF SCHOOL BUS CONTRACTING
Private contractors provide about one-fourth to one-third of the vehicles needed for pupil transportation in the United States. Their major concerns are the inability to attract and keep qualified drivers, providing continued training, and safety of both school children and drivers as well as funding. Most contractors agree that there is good potential for growth for private contracting, especially where budget constraints for schools are diminished, but restrictions and stipulations imposed by various jurisdictions hamper this growth.
