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.

Training Day!

Monday, April 16th, 2018

On Thursday April 5th, during Spring Break week, we held a full day training in-service for 30 of our operational staff (dispatchers and general managers) from all of our locations.  With many transitional activities taking place – and to ensure everyone was best prepared for the busy spring season ahead – Trinity brought everyone together for one last training and development session for the school year.

After the training, management took everyone to downtown Detroit for a fun evening of team building activities, which including going to “Escape the Room” (an escape room where you have 60 minutes for your team to decipher clues and get out), and then out to a fabulous dinner afterwards.

We had a great day filled with knowledge and development that ended in fun! Our dispatchers and general managers are ready to serve you, our customers, with their best foot forward!

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!
