Student Transportation Inc. Honors Its Drivers With Exemplary Safety Records Throughout North America

WALL, N.J., Oct. 18, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Student Transportation Inc. ("STI") (TSX:STB) (Nasdaq:STB), North America's third-largest provider of school bus transportation services, joins school districts throughout the United States and Canada in recognizing the importance of School Bus Safety Week, October 22 - 26.

STI and its operating subsidiaries, Student Transportation of America and Student Transportation of Canada, will recognize and honor employees who exemplify the high standards that the company has for safety. Award ceremonies are planned for those employees with many years of accident-free driving, 'heroes' who perform acts of courage during the year and those who take the extra pre-cautionary step to ensure the safety of the children on their school bus.

"STI is dedicated, above all else, to the safety of our passengers and the communities we share the road with every day. School Bus Safety Week provides us with an opportunity to honor those employees who go above and beyond the call of duty," said Don Weir, Student Transportation Inc.'s Director of Passenger Safety and Compliance. "Some of our drivers have accident-free records spanning more than 35 years; others have been involved in service to individuals and communities that is nothing short of heroic. School Bus Safety Week presents the perfect opportunity for STI, as a company, to give back to these heroic individuals."

STI provides in-depth training programs through its ST University training curriculum including the distance learning module 'Behavior-Based Safety Training'. This course is available to everyone in the Student Transportation family and is designed to help employees understand the concepts of behavior-based safety, including how to apply these techniques towards their daily duties and responsibilities, allowing for optimal safety and security for their passengers.

This year's School Bus Safety Week theme is "I See the Driver – the Driver Sees Me!". The Company's more than 150 locations throughout North America will have programs and events customized to their region. Plans range from school bus safety poster design contests and new pre-trip inspection programs, to tracking accident-free days and posting new safety memos on driver boards.
