In the transportation industry, many who are looking to contract or charter a school bus are often looking to shop for "a bargain price" but in doing so may sacrifice quality, service, and most importantly SAFETY... the difference between a company who does an outstanding job of bus maintenance and driver safety training and a company who will cut corners on both bus maintenance and driver safety training. At David Thomas Transportation, we don't believe in "cutting corners." We offer you quality first time, every time. With us, you always get what you pay for... a clean, late model, and well-maintained school bus and a safe, friendly and knowledgeable professional driver, always in uniform.
