What Is

First Student's Mission Statement

?
We provide solutions for an increasingly congested world, keeping people moving and communities prospering. The reality is this: managing transportation within your district can be a challenge. Securing capital for new buses, managing routing issues, recruiting and training drivers, and keeping parents and administrators informed all consume valuable time, and can take precious focus and resources away from where they're needed most: the classroom. First Student is committed to easing your daily transportation challenges and ensuring your students have the best possible ride to and from school.

What First Student's Employees Say

First Student offers competitive rates of pay and a variety of benefits. Employees also enjoy plenty of spare time during the day between taking children to and from school.
