Student Transportation

For public and private schools, day treatment plans, partial hospitalization programs, and other programs serving children with special needs, Ride Right offers specialized solutions for student transportation. We understand, and are sensitive to, the complexities of transporting special needs children and students covered by the McKinney-Vento Act.

Ride to School

Throughout the country, Ride Right transports 750 children with special needs, delayed intellectual or developmental skills, and other disabilities to their Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) with care every day. The parents and schools of the students we transport appreciate our deep commitment to making sure each pupil safely arrives to receive the education they need. While quality is of the utmost importance, Ride Right recognizes that providing excellent service isn’t always enough. At a time when education dollars are stretched thin, cost reduction is critical. Schools are willing to consider alternative delivery models to reduce or contain costs.

With this in mind, Ride Right aims to transition students from traditional large school buses to fuel efficient vans and sedans. This transition, paired with enhanced routing and improved vehicle utilization, can reduce special needs transportation costs by up to 30%. Simply put, as your special needs transportation partner, Ride Right can make your job easier and let you return your focus where it belongs: education.
