Stocks in this article: STB

WALL, N.J., Oct. 17, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Student Transportation Inc. ("STI") (TSX:STB) (Nasdaq:STB), the premier, innovative provider of school bus transportation services in North America, joins school districts throughout the United States and Canada in recognizing the importance of National School Bus Safety Week taking place next week, October 21 - 25. This year's School Bus Safety Week theme is "Stand Back from the Yellow and Black," which is a reminder to students and motorists about the dangers that exist outside the school bus on a daily basis.

"At STI, safety is more than just an element in our daily routine. It is quite simply the most important part of our business, every single day," states Don Weir, Student Transportation Inc.'s Director of Passenger Safety and Compliance. "The care and professionalism that our STI family displays keeps the children safe during their daily trips to and from school. Safety begins behind the wheel and our educated, professional drivers are the bedrock for our reliable and successful performance."

Regardless of how a school's transportation system is run, STI urges everyone to take time and focus on this important topic. School Bus Safety Week serves as a great reminder to discuss how you can improve safety at the bus stop, at the schools, and on board the vehicles. Employees at the over 150 STI locations throughout North America are participating in safety demonstrations with some wearing silicone wristbands with safety messages and all are working with their customers and communities to continuously improve safety in and around the school bus. The company is also rolling out a new video on this very timely subject next week on their website

"Our drivers, mechanics, monitors, and other school transportation personnel receive an assortment of cutting-edge training, giving them the tools that they need to handle their jobs each day. This includes everything from daily safety messages to in-depth training that regularly exceeds state and federal regulations," adds Mr. Weir. "Additionally, School Bus Safety Week is the perfect time to announce the creation of the STI 'Wall of Fame', which will honor those employees from all functional areas of the STI family for their commitment to our passengers' safety," he concludes.
