WATERLOO, Ia. - Durham School Services, a leading provider of student transportation, invited Mayor Quentin Hart to tour their facility in Waterloo, Iowa.
Durham team members walked Mayor Hart through the daily operations, including pre- and post-trip inspections and child check procedure, to safely transport nearly 5,000 students to Waterloo Community Schools every school day.
“My visit was very educational and informative—I was impressed with the Durham team’s dedication to safety. Every aspect of the tour enlightened me about all the work that goes into getting our students to school safely,” said Mayor Hart. “While school has closed for the summer, I know Durham will continue to work ensuring that our buses are safe for our students in the coming year.”
