The Houston Independent School District Transportation Department will be recognized by the City of Houston Mayor’s office this month. February is national “Love the Bus” month which raises awareness and appreciation for school bus transportation personnel who work to safely transport children to and from school.
For the second consecutive year, the Houston Independent School District made the list of the top 100 fleets in the nation for 2012, according to Government Fleet, a leading transportation industry magazine. HISD moved up five spots to number 52 on the list and once again is the only school district in the country to earn a spot on the list.
“Ranking among the best in the nation is a clear reflection of the hard work of our transportation team, from our bus drivers to our mechanics and our entire staff,” HISD’s Chief Operating Officer Leo Bobadilla said. “HISD’s Transportation Department is truly dedicated to safely transporting our students to and from school every day.”
