Your Convention Transportation

Thursday, August 2nd, 2018

Conventions are a fun and terrific way to learn more about your industry and meet other professionals in your field. They provide the information you need to build on your experience and grow in your profession. As a distinguished transportation company, we’re prepared to make your convention transportation the best it can be!

If you have yet to book transportation for your convention, we take you through the process step-by-step in this article. Once you’ve gone through each step and secured your transportation, your vehicle will be booked and you will be set for the day of your convention! Our reservations specialists usually reach out about a week before the date of your convention to ensure the details and information on file are correct, and to make any needed changes. On the day of your convention, the driver(s) will arrive at the specified pick-up location at the time discussed (usually 5-15 minutes early) with the vehicle(s) you selected. Upon meeting your driver(s), we recommend that you exchange phone numbers so communication can occur throughout your time together. Depending on the length of your convention and the services requested, your vehicle(s) will typically stay at the venue the entire time.

After the services are complete, you are all set! Your reservations specialist may reach out to you a day or two after your convention to ask for feedback on our services. As always, we appreciate having valuable customers like you and can’t wait to assist you with your transportation needs!

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!

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 Partners with Lakeview Public Schools for Their Annual Back to School Drive

Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

It’s August, which means it’s back-to-school time! With summer coming to a close, it is the time to buy new supplies and to get in the spirit of learning.

In preparation of the school year, Trinity Transportation is proud to partner with Lakeview Public Schools to “Stuff the Bus”! We have been a part of this event for over five years, providing one of our school buses to be filled with donated school supplies. Donations of new backpacks, pencils, pens, crayons, notebooks, glue sticks, folders, rulers, etc., will be accepted from August 14th – 25th at 27575 Harper (Wheat Educational Campus). These items will be given to children at Lakeview Public Schools to assist with needed school supplies for the year.

For further information, please contact Lakeview Public Schools at (586) 445-4000, ext. 2501. Your donations are greatly appreciated!
