Trinity Supports River Rouge School District’s Back to School Rally

Monday, August 27th, 2018

Getting ready to go back to school is a fun and exciting time for most families, from finding out who will be your child’s teacher for the year to buying new supplies and clothing; however, for some families, this time is more of a challenging one. Financial struggles and access to certain amenities can be a burden during the preparation for each new school year, but Operation Backpack is determined to change that. Every year, Operation Backpack provides backpacks filled with school supplies, toiletries, and reusable water bottles to children in need so they can have the necessary items to be prepared and ready to learn.

Trinity Transportation was proud to donate backpacks for this year’s Back to School Rally put on by Operation Backpack for River Rouge schools. The event was held at River Rouge High School on Friday, August 24th, 2018, and was full of families having fun and enjoying the last of summer break. There were bounce houses with slides, free food and bottled water, various vendors, free haircuts, backpacks filled with supplies being handed out, and much more! Home Depot was giving kids aprons to wear and write their names on and had a table where kids could create their very own toolboxes!

The River Rouge Back to School Rally was a great success and we are so honored to have been a partner!

Trinity Transportation Hosts Annual Back to School Meeting

Tuesday, August 21st, 2018

Every year, Trinity Transportation prepares for the new school year by hosting our annual Back to School Meeting for school bus division employees. During the meeting, company protocol, procedures, and safety measures are reviewed to ensure our employees put their best foot forward for the upcoming school year.

“As an organization, we understand the importance of thorough planning and preparation. That is why each year, before the start of school, we bring together all of our school bus division employees for a back to school startup meeting to review policy changes and receive continuing education training”, Chief Operating Officer Dave Holls stated. “At this year’s meeting, crisis de-escalation and student management on the bus were two highlighted training events everyone participated in.”

Our meeting this year had over 500 attendees, including two special guests from our parent company, National Express: Vice President of Safety Kevin Kilner and Head of Transit Maintenance William Diamond. The day started with an introduction from Dave Holls, who discussed safety initiatives including our ongoing Target Zero campaign. He also discussed the performance of our terminals; what employees should do before, during, and after their routes; and reiterated the Driving out Harm program. Kevin Kilner delivered an important safety message, touching on how imperative it is that we follow all of the guidelines and procedures put in place in order to keep our communities safe.

After lunch, Area General Manager Kevin Dunbar gave training on blood borne pathogens, which prepared employees for cases where bodily fluids are involved. The training took employees through the process of what to do in a medical emergency and how to handle bodily fluids with precaution. Next up was DriveCam coaching, conducted by Dave Holls, and then customer service training from Sales Director Pete Rudnik. The meeting ended with educational videos on preventative techniques for crisis intervention and a discussion about student management.

During the meeting, there were periodic breaks for some fun! Upon arrival, employees were given raffle tickets for a chance to spin the prize wheel and win prizes. A total of 13 prizes were given away, including a Keurig set, Amazon Fire Cube, tablets, a record player, and a five-piece luggage set.
