Get to Know Our Fleet Divisions

Thursday, February 1st, 2018

At Trinity Transportation, we offer several different types of vehicles based on your transportation needs. Our vehicles are split into three divisions: school bus, sedan, and motor coach. Considering school buses? They are great for school routes, field trips, athletics, weddings, and special events.

Our trolley is super fun and is popular with weddings, special events, and fundraisers! For marching band trips, group vacations, athletics, conventions, weddings, fundraisers, and student/field trips, hop on our motor coach bus.

Are you attending an athletic or corporate event, or need airport or student transportation? Our shuttle is the vehicle for you! Many people use our party bus for weddings, a night out, or special events. Last, but not least, our sedan division is perfect for corporate and airport needs, special events and student transportation!

To help you pick the right vehicle when booking, we’re going to give you a breakdown of each division, including a few highlights of each vehicle. One plus across the board: all of our vehicles have GPS tracking!

Back to School Safety

Tuesday, September 5th, 2017

The school year has started, which means children and school buses are on the road every morning and afternoon…so it’s time to talk about back to school safety! School buses are one of the safest transportation vehicles, but there are hazards to be aware of when kids are getting on and off of the bus, and while walking to the bus stop.

If you are driving:

  • Do not double park – it blocks the field of vision for children and other vehicles
  • Don’t pick up or drop off children across the street from their school
  • Carpool if you can to decrease the number of automobiles at the school
  • Don’t block the crosswalk! This could put pedestrians in the path of moving vehicles
  • Never go around a vehicle that is stopped for pedestrians
  • Use extra caution when driving in school zones, in residential areas, and by playgrounds/parks – children may be nearby
  • Take an extra look when backing out – children could be walking or bicycling by
  • Be aware of school bus signals. Yellow flashing lights mean the bus is coming to a stop to drop off or pick up children. All vehicles must slow down and come to a stop. Red flashing lights and an extended stop sign mean the bus is stopped and the children are getting onto the bus or off of it. Drivers must also stop and remain at least ten feet away, not starting up again until the bus’s red flashing lights are off, the stop sign has been returned, and the bus starts moving
  • If there is a bicyclist driving on the side of the road, pass slowly and remain at least three feet away from the bicyclist
  • If a bicyclist is approaching while you are turning right, brake and let them go through first – and always use your turn signal
  • Keep an eye out for bicyclists riding/turning in front of you without looking or signaling

If you are a pedestrian:

  • Be early – aim to be at your bus stop at least five minutes before the scheduled arrival of the bus
  • Stand a safe distance away from the street (six or more feet) while waiting and when the bus arrives
  • Do not move towards the bus until the bus driver opens the door and signals to proceed onto the bus
  • Be visible at all times! If you must cross the street in front of the bus, walk up the street 10 feet or so before crossing, and make sure the bus driver sees you. Never walk behind the bus.
  • If you drop something by the bus, inform your bus driver. Do not try to pick it up as you may not be in your driver’s line of sight

Safety is extremely important. If we all take the necessary precautions, it will be a safe school year for everyone! Happy back to school!

Trinity Transportation Prepares for 2017-2018 School Year

Thursday, August 17th, 2017

It’s back-to-school season, which means it’s time for Trinity Transportation’s annual Back to School meeting! Every year, Trinity hosts a meeting before the school year starts to review safety, protocol, and procedures with our school bus drivers and aides.

“Each year, Trinity brings together all school bus division employees from our 10 locations to have a combined back-to-school meeting in preparation of the new school year,” stated Regional Operations Manager, Dave Holls. “This meeting allows all of our employees to receive combined training, learn about changes to employee benefits and company improvements, and allow us time to acknowledge and celebrate our accomplishments and success.

Regional Operations Manager, Dave Holls, speaking to Trinity employees

“This year we had over 500 employees in attendance for our meeting – the most ever!  As Trinity continues to grow, and is now part of the National Express family of companies, we continue to be able to offer new and exciting benefits and tools for our employees.  Our back to school meeting allows us to review all of these new improvements and prepare our staff for the goals and objectives of the new school year.”

Kicking off the meeting was Trinity Transportation President, Jerry Sheppard, who gave a welcoming speech to the crowd. He addressed how successful Trinity has been, how fast we are growing, and the resources we’ll acquire upon finishing the merge with National Express.

The day continued with two National Express executives and several Trinity Transportation executives and managers speaking on important policies, safety, branding, customer service, employee appreciation, and marketing.

From Chief Operating Officer, Austin Arksey: “Our Back to School meeting this year was a great success with our biggest turnout to date. There was a lot of excitement amongst our school bus drivers and aides for the new school year! Between the merge with National Express and the growing of Trinity Transportation, we’re ready to utilize every resource to make this year one of the best.”

At the end of the day, employees had the chance to play “Spin the Wheel”, where over $600 in Visa gift cards were given away! Three employees had golden tickets under their chairs, which won them each an Apple Watch!

The Back to School meeting was an ultimate success – a day filled with important information that also brought Trinity employees together. To see more pictures, check out our Facebook page!
