STS bus drivers and bus guardians undergo rigorous training programs in road safety management and safe driving practices that are in line with RTA regulations and are supported by the RTA’s Traffic Safety Specialists. They have an extensive fleet, equipped with state-of-the-art technologies to ensure student safety.

  • STS App: The App is an easy-to-use platform that allows parents to log on and view real time information of Child’s movements in and out of the bus.
  • Route Optimization: STS has introduced new route management software that will improve student bus routes through optimization, with the focus to reduce journey times.
  • Alert Button: All our buses have an Alert Button installed on the dashboard in case of an emergency. The alert button sends an immediate alert to our 24-hour OCC, with the bus and driver details.
