Student Transportation Inc. Recognizes Its Dedicated Employees

Stocks in this article: STB

WALL, N.J., May 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Student Transportation Inc. ("STI") (TSX:STB) (Nasdaq:STB), North America's third-largest provider of school bus transportation services, honored its employees with a company-wide "Employee Appreciation Week" during April 22 – 26. With the company continuing to grow and expand throughout the United States and Canada, there are now almost 10,000 employees, including drivers, mechanics, and dispatchers, that make up Student Transportation Inc. and its subsidiaries, Student Transportation of America and Student Transportation of Canada. A video message was released at the beginning of the week featuring Chief Operating Officer Patrick Vaughan who shared his appreciation and recognized the company's employees for their dedication to service and commitment to safety.

STI also launched its Student Transportation Appreciation and Recognition ("STAR") Program which will recognize employees regularly for their special contributions, including a monthly feature on the company's website as part of the company's new Employee Spotlight initiative. The STAR Program was the brainchild of the STI Communications Council, and a direct result of the managers throughout North America coming together and wanting to acknowledge all of the great work that their employees do on a daily basis.

Employee Appreciation events took place throughout the week at Student Transportation's 128 locations across the United States and Canada. Events included catered breakfasts, lunches and cookouts, as well as prize raffles and awards ceremonies which also included school officials and community leaders, in addition to STI employees.

Some of the more than 250 school districts served by STI also participated in the company-wide festivities. In Battle Ground, WA, over 200 people attended one Employee Appreciation celebration, including members of the school district, where STI employees were recognized and presented a plaque by the district for their skill and dedication.

"Our employees are the backbone of our company and we wanted to express our gratitude for their dedication and care of the nearly one million students that we transport to and from school safely and on time each day," stated Mr. Vaughan.
