SAN CLEMENTE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 23, 2020--

ALC Schools announced today that the close of 2019 marked a major milestone for the alternative student transportation company with the completion of more than 1.75 million student passenger trips and 17 million safe miles driven in 2019. The Southern California based transportation provider provides state and district compliant student transportation as a supplement to school districts’ busing systems.

The company credits ALC employees, service providers, and drivers across the country for their dedication to safety and consistency with a focus on each student’s unique needs.

“From our routing and optimization team, to field operations, compliance, and live dispatch, we never lose sight of our commitment to meeting the needs of that one student,” said Gregg Prettyman, Chief Operating Officer at ALC Schools.

With more than a decade of experience, ALC Schools is the pioneer and leader in alternative student transportation. ALC’s transportation model ensures students have the same driver every day, providing them with the consistency they need. Leveraging proprietary routing software ALC delivers safety, consistency, and cost-savings to school districts.

The company also marked the one-year anniversary of its ALC Schools dispatch and operations center in Raleigh, N.C. Working in tandem with their dispatch and operations center in St. George, Utah, the Raleigh operations center provides comprehensive, nationwide “dawn-to-dusk” dispatch coverage for ALC’s district customers.
