Sample Activity Trip Costs Charged To Schools

(By County)

The lowest cost per mile and the lowest total cost per trip in the metro area. Our goal is to provide the safest, most cost-effective extracurricular transportation service available!


Regular operating 1 driver benefits 160 5 3 11 97 drivers allotted salary 8 749 80

Increases are due primarily to increased demand by HS and increases to mileage/driver costs charged to schools ($.90 to $1.50 from 2003 to 2011).
