Trinity Transportation Lands Contract for Detroit Public Schools, Plans to Hire over 200 Bus Drivers
Trinity Transportation has been awarded a contract with Detroit Public Schools to handle over 100 school bus routes throughout the school district.
The contract will begin at the start of the 2015-2016 school year. Trinity will be running their services out of two DPS terminals that they will be taking over in the fall.
Trinity Owner and President Jerry Sheppard’s knowledge of the transportation industry in Detroit is extensive and he feels that Trinity was the perfect fit for Detroit Public Schools’ transportation.
“Trinity Transportation has had the pleasure of serving Southeast Michigan for over 30 years,” Sheppard said. “We are thrilled to welcome Detroit Public Schools to our family and continue serving the metro Detroit area.”
The company currently services several academies in Detroit and many businesses based in the city, according to Trinity Sales Director Austin Arksey.
“We are pleased to be involved with Detroit Public Schools during the revitalization of the city,” Arksey said. “Many great things are happening downtown and we are excited to be on board.”
Trinity plans to hire more than 200 school bus drivers this summer to serve Detroit Public Schools.
“We are really excited to bring on current drivers for DPS, as well as new drivers, to become a part of the Trinity team,” said Adina Allen, Trinity Transportation’s human resources manager.
