PALMDALE — Palmdale School District will have a new transportation company to serve the District’s students beginning July 1.
The District’s governing Board approved a three-year contract with Modesto-based Storer Transportation at Tuesday’s meeting.
“It’s a smaller company and we’re very excited to partner up with them,” Superintendent Raul Maldonado said.
The District owns its buses. Storer will manage the buses as well as hire personnel.
Storer will be responsible for providing labor, additional buses as needed, and the necessary materials and supplies required to provide the District with transportation services, according to the contract.
The company’s transportation services include, but may not be limited to, providing home-to-school transportation for regular and special education pupils and other transportation services such as field trips.
The contract with Storer is good through June 30, 2022. Rates for service shall be adjusted annually beginning July 1, 2020, and each July thereafter, based upon the funded COLA provided to California schools as defined by Proposition 98 for that year, according to the contract.
Storer’s fee schedule was not immediately available Thursday.
