Brevard County Choice Students, 'Reserve Your Seat' For School Bus Service

Stocks in this article: STB

"These statistics support that our SchoolWheels Direct program is a cost efficient alternative for the parents seeking safe, reliable service for their children to get to school by a nationally recognized leader in school bus transportation," said Robert Scholer, SchoolWheels Director of Sales. "The routes are being formed, the vehicles are here and we need parents to commit to the service as soon as possible to ensure their children have seats on the bus. This is an exclusive service and one that is safe, secure and cost effective. We welcome parents with questions to contact us directly or visit our web site."

The Company said new Florida state-inspected school vehicles are on the ground being readied to service the parents and students of numerous "Choice Schools" for the coming school year beginning this August. The vehicles will be equipped with air conditioning, Global Positing Systems, seat belts, onboard cameras and the Company's exclusive Safe Stop™ notification system for additional safety and security. All drivers will be Florida State Certified school bus drivers and the vehicles will meet or exceed all Federal and State standards.

The Brevard School Board said approximately 2500 students were affected by the cut backs in transportation throughout the county. SchoolWheels Direct is currently serving the Duval County, Florida area with similar transportation to their Magnet Schools, and has received tremendous accolades from the parents serviced in the city.
