An open house and ribbon-cutting ceremony were held today at STA's new Omaha South facility at 5402 L Street, Omaha. In addition, STA announced plans to construct a 15,000-square-foot facility in north Omaha.

"This is a monumental day for our company, for Omaha and the great state of Nebraska," said STI Chairman and CEO Denis J. Gallagher. "We commend the leaders of the Omaha and Millard Public Schools for their commitment to reduce the districts' carbon dioxide emissions by nearly 2.5 million pounds each year. They will serve as model communities in which private enterprise and public education partner to create a world-class, environmentally-friendly transportation system."

"I'm pleased about the partnership between Student Transportation, the Omaha Public Schools and Millard Public Schools," said Gov. Dave Heineman. "I am hopeful that there will be long term fuel cost savings that can be re-invested in student academic programs."
