Trinity Transportation Donates Buses to Wayne State University’s Baseball Camp

Monday, July 9th, 2018

 

At the end of June, Wayne State University put on their annual week-long baseball camp in partnership with the Detroit Tigers and Trinity Transportation! Kids ages 7-18 came from all around the Metro Detroit area to advance their baseball skills and learn from the best at this camp. The participating kids visited Comerica Park where they were able to go onto the field for batting practice, received a special tour, and spent time with the players and coaches. The camp ended with the participating kids receiving a tour of WSU’s campus and spending time with WSU’s baseball players and coaches who taught the campers new drills and exercises and showed them what it’s like to be a collegiate athlete. We are proud to support our future baseball players by providing the transportation for this annual camp!

WSU head coach Ryan Kelley said, “It was an exciting and action-packed week of baseball at our annual summer camp. We hope all participants enjoyed spending their time with us in a combined MLB and NCAA environment in our great baseball city of Detroit! I would like to thank the Detroit Tigers Foundation for outstanding leadership, support, and a commitment to helping provide a great experience for all participants. I would also like to thank all of our camp staff, which included current and former NCAA baseball student-athletes, high school coaches, select youth coaches, and former professional baseball players. Plus, Trinity Transportation was instrumental in helping with our ground transportation during camp. On behalf of our camp staff, I would like to wish all participants a great deal of success on and off the field for the remainder of this summer and look forward to seeing you again at future events.”

The week filled with baseball was a success and we are so happy to have been a part of it!

 

Trinity Transportation Acquires Contract with Schools in Northwest Detroit

Tuesday, June 26th, 2018

We are excited to announce that Trinity Transportation has become the transportation provider for six schools in the Detroit Public Schools Community District and four charter schools in northwest Detroit! Trinity’s buses will take students to and from school and to and from after-school programs at the Northwest Activities Center. In an effort to keep security high, the city will be implementing a card-swiping system on the buses and at the Northwest Activities Center. This system will send text messages to parents when their children enter and exit the school bus, and when they go to and from after-school programs. As with a lot of our current routes, the buses for these schools will have two adults on board at all times: a driver and an attendant. We are thrilled to continue our relationship with Detroit Public Schools and look forward to helping with the growth of our future students!

Trinity Transportation Participates in Gleaners’ Annual Food Fight!

Friday, April 20th, 2018

Gleaners Community Food Bank works hard every day to provide meals to families in need in Southeast Michigan. The holidays are a popular time for food donations, but the contributions tend to slow down in the spring. To help combat the decrease in donations, Gleaners hosts their Food Fight every year, where companies and organizations participate in a friendly competition to raise the most meals through food and monetary donations.

This year, Trinity participated in the Food Fight with 31 other organizations and companies to help ensure families don’t have to go without a meal this spring. We raised 500 pounds of food, which equals out to 415 meals!

Every season can be the season of giving – those in need in our community need food year round, and food banks like Gleaners are always accepting donations. We are proud to have helped in their efforts to feed our community!

Safety First!

Tuesday, January 9th, 2018

At Trinity Transportation we pride ourselves in making safety our number one priority. Safety is the most important thing to be focused on and practiced when operating a vehicle. In order to ensure our drivers are taking the necessary precautions before, during, and after operating their vehicles, we have monthly safety meetings at each of our terminals.

In December, Trinity’s operations and safety departments put on their monthly safety meeting with the help of Safety Claus! Regional Operations Manager Dave Holls dressed up as Safety Claus to add a fun touch to learning about safety.

The meeting was required for all school bus employees and was headed by Safety Director Carl Ingram and School Bus Training Manager Derrick Ingram. They discussed the different tactics of staying safe on the road while driving a school bus (and being an aide!). Many topics were covered, including proper safety procedures, distracted driving, and having heightened awareness while on the road. There were even some fun quizzes thrown in the presentation!

Our employees are prepared to work together and practice all safety procedures learned in order to reach our goal of becoming the safest transportation company!

Christmastime at Trinity

Friday, December 22nd, 2017

Christmas is an exciting time, with joy and love filling the air. It’s the season where we spend time with loved ones, celebrate the wonderful memories surrounding this wonderful holiday, and give to those in need if we can. To celebrate Christmas, each of our terminals held potlucks over the past two weeks, where Trinity provided the main dishes and employees brought in their favorite holiday foods!

Each morning started off with a safety meeting held by our very own Safety Claus! Safety Claus, Safety Director Carl Ingram, and School Bus Training Manager Derrick Ingram discussed the different tactics of staying safe on the road while driving a school bus (and being an aide!). Topics covered included distracted driving, proper safety procedures, and having heightened awareness while on the road. Our goal is to become the safest transportation company!

After the safety meeting, it was time to eat! Employees at each terminal reveled in each other’s company while enjoying some delicious food. The potlucks were full of laughter, joy, and plenty of holiday spirit.

National School Bus Safety Week

Monday, October 23rd, 2017

National School Bus Safety Week is an educational program that encourages students, faculty, parents, and anyone interested to learn about and spread the significance of school bus safety. This week is important for publicizing the safety procedures and dangers associated with school bus transportation.

National School Bus Safety Week takes place every year during the third week of October. This year, October 16th through 20th was National School Bus Safety Week, and Trinity participated by practicing and reviewing school bus safety! This year’s theme was “Stop on Red”, a reminder to always stop when a school bus’s stop sign is out and the red lights are flashing.

Trinity Transportation’s school bus drivers and aides attended Special Saturday on October 14th to kick off National School Bus Safety Week. The day consisted of different classes and training focused on children with special needs, including bus evacuations, learning about children with different disabilities, positive approach to behavior management, and team building strategies.

School bus safety is extremely important, not only for students and bus drivers, but for parents, automobile drivers, and pedestrians. For more information about school bus safety, check out our article!

Trinity Transportation Supports River Rouge School District Operation Backpack Rally

Wednesday, August 30th, 2017

For some families, getting ready to go back to school can be a stressful time. Between purchasing backpacks and school supplies to clothes and shoes, it can be hard to cover the costs. This is where Operation Backpack steps in. Operation Backpack provides backpacks filled with school supplies, toiletries, and water bottles to children in need so they can enter the school year prepared and ready to learn.

Trinity Transportation was proud to provide backpacks for the Operation Backpack Back to School Rally on Friday, August 25th, 2017, at River Rouge High School. The event was packed with families enjoying all of the fun activities on a nice summer day. There were three bounce houses with slides, free food and bottled water, school information (and information from various vendors), a slush machine, and much more. Paws from the Detroit Tigers even made an appearance! Home Depot handed out boats for the kids to build and aprons for them to wear (and write their names on!), and Metro PCS was taking individual photos and printing them off with a special frame for families to take home.

Tarence Wheeler, Operation Backpack organizer, said of the event: “Because of our great partnership with Trinity Transportation, we provided over 1,500 backpacks stuffed with school supplies & toiletries for students.  We know that student success is predicated on adult participation. Collectively we can alleviate all non-academic barriers.”

The River Rouge Operation Backpack rally was extremely successful and we are honored to have been a partner!

Trinity Lowers Driver Applicant Age to 21

Monday, February 6th, 2017

Trinity doesn’t just hire drivers.  We create experiences.  Our customer care and safety is our #1 priority and our quality drivers are what makes this happen.

To bring in more quality drivers, Trinity Transportation has changed the requirements allowing for younger drivers to now become part of the Trinity family.  Effective immediately driver applicants’ minimum age requirement has been lowered to 21, with no driving infractions.  An applicant can be 21 years old, but they are required to have had their driver’s license for at least 3 years and have had zero driving infractions. Those 22 or 23 years old will be considered with up to one minor moving violation, within the past two years.

At Trinity, we take the time to make sure our drivers, dispatchers, and mechanics are well-trained and prepared to serve our customers. Don’t have a CDL? Trinity Transportation offers paid training to help you obtain your commercial driver’s license. If you’re a current truck driver with over the road experience, we want you as well!

Employees can expect: paid training, weekly pay, health insurance, vacation time, retirement and much more!

"Shop with a Cop" Annual Event, Trinity Transportation Donates School Bus

Friday, December 11th, 2015

“Shop with a Cop”

December 9th was the Annual “Shop with a Cop” event put on by Grosse Pointe Farms Police Department. This is the 5th year this event has been held and Grosse Pointe Farms Public Safety Officer Veronica Cashion was excited to see it return.

“Shop with a Cop” normally consists of the Police Officers in Grosse Pointe Farms and a couple of surrounding cities taking 25-50 special needs children Christmas shopping at a local Target. The day usually includes a lunch with the children and officers as well.

The students that participated this year were from Ferry Elementary in Grosse Pointe Farms. This year, rather than shopping, the children were invited to Grosse Pointe Farms Pier Park to do arts and crafts with the police officers, then got to meet Santa where they were each given gifts.

Trinity Transportation donated the school bus transportation for this event. Not only did the children get to ride from their school to the venue where the event took place, but they received a police escort on the way. Two Trinity Transportation drivers that normally service these children on a daily basis were able to show up and celebrate the holiday with them. Take a look at the event below!

Trinity Transportation Continues Expansion into Detroit, Provides Shuttle Service for the Detroit Medical Center and Wayne State University

Thursday, December 3rd, 2015

Trinity Transportation is proud to announce that as of January 2016, they will be the new transportation provider for the shuttle services offered at the Detroit Medical Center (DMC) and Wayne State University. They will be providing roughly 9 mid sized mini coaches that will operate Monday thru Friday available to both Wayne State students and faculty and DMC workers (over 40,000 people combined).

Detroit Medical Center Hospital

This new partnership between the DMC/Wayne State University and Trinity Transportation comes just months after Trinity acquired the majority of school routes for Detroit Public Schools. Trinity currently has two bus terminals in the city of Detroit where they manage around 100 school routes for DPS.

“We are very excited to add DMC to our list of partnerships,” said Austin Arksey, Trinity Transportation’s Chief Operating Officer. Trinity already has prior experience transporting Wayne State University’s athletic teams. “We’re also very excited to branch out into the city of Detroit and be a part of its resurgence.”

Arksey also says that the company plans on purchasing more buses to add to their fleet for this acquisition.

Trinity runs the shuttle service for many other universities throughout the southeast Michigan area and has been working diligently to ensure the transition between the current shuttle provider for DMC/WSU and them goes smoothly.
