SchoolWheels Direct To Debut Transportation Service In South Carolina

Stocks in this article: STB

Families with students enrolled at schools serviced by SchoolWheels Direct will now be able to sign up for the type of bus service they would like, choose a route, make payments, and manage their account on the provider's website, www.schoolwheels.com . The fleet of vehicles servicing the area will consist of brand new school buses that feature air conditioning, on-board GPS, camera systems for safety and security, and other technology-enhancing products and services. Parents of students riding on these vehicles can purchase the company's revolutionary app, SafeStop TM, which allows them to securely track the status of their child's bus along its route to and from school every day.

Robert Scholer, Director of Sales for SchoolWheels Direct, who is leading the Charleston launch said, "When parent groups in the area reached out and spoke to us, it became clear that they were looking for the safest vehicles and an easy system to sign up and pay. So our mission for this coming year is to provide the Greater Charleston Area with state-of-the-art vehicles and give more parents the safety and customer service they deserve. That's what we provide."

SchoolWheels Direct is working with various schools and organizations and plans to announce multiple agreements for new service in the upcoming weeks. The company will be offering bus service for any area public or private schools or organizations that need transportation for field and athletic trips or special events.

Those interested in transportation or charter services for their school or organization are invited to contact Robert Scholer via email at rscholer@schoolwheels.com or at (855) 884-2720 extension 209.
