Information : Transportation Fleet Utilization
To address growth and pupil transportation problems, Stafford County Public Schools implemented a staggered class start schedule for each of three student grade groups; primary, middle, and secondary. This new schedule was set to maximize bus fleet utilization by allowing most of the buses to run three routes per day.
After this schedule was implemented, the transportation capacity of the system was increased without adding buses, the student age groups were separated, and the bus utilization increased to an average of 101 students per day per bus (the state average is 77 students/bus/day). Further, average annual transportation cost per pupil decreased to $233.12 (state average is $245.71/year).
