Student Transportation Inc. Awarded Three New Contracts In Upstate NY

WALL, N.J., Feb. 24, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Student Transportation Inc. ("STI") (TSX:STB) (Nasdaq:STB), North America's third largest provider of school bus transportation services announced today its subsidiary, Student Transportation of America, Inc. (STA), has been awarded three new school transportation contracts in upstate New York. Batavia City School District and Attica Central School District, both members of the Genesee Valley Educational Partnership, along with the Williamsville Central School District, have all signed new contracts with STA and will switch from their current service provider beginning next school year. The contracts will generate over $7 million in new annualized revenue for STA starting next school year.
