Leading With Love
Teresa Fleming with The School District of Philadelphia is no stranger to the various challenges in transportation, but her hard work and determination ensure students are transported to and from school each day.

Tread Carefully
Tires are what keep school buses moving to pick up and drop off students. But how does tread wear differ depending on the fuel/energy choice powering the vehicle?

Protected
Breaking any type of equipment is never ideal, but ensuring the technology purchased contains warranties helps safeguard against unexpected fees.
