Pupil Transportation


A secure, safe and reliable shuttle service for your most precious cargo – your kids.


UTS has recognized that as school systems and districts face decreased budgets and fluctuating enrollments, coordinating transportation can be a costly and time-consuming process. By outsourcing transportation to UTS, organizations are able to stretch their valuable resources, saving an average of 10-30% overall, without sacrificing quality, safety, or reliability.

UTS specializes in providing transportation for public and private schools, day treatment plans, partial hospitalization programs, and other special needs programs. UTS customizes solutions to meet the requirements of each individual system, from simply offering management expertise of existing transportation services to full turnkey operations. Contracting with UTS will allow a school district to return their focus on cost savings, and their time to the education programs.

UTS’ experience in routing and logistics is unsurpassed. Utilizing the Novus TripSpark software UTS is able to streamline the time-consuming routing and scheduling process which provides the highest efficiency in all aspects of transportation.
