At ALC, our focus is on fulfilling districts’ special transportation needs. Every day we coordinate trips for thousands of students, yet we never lose sight of the importance of each student’s individual and unique circumstances.
We realize that knowing the student’s preference to sit on the right-side of the vehicle, for example, or to be accompanied by a favorite stuffed animal is just as important, in many cases, as understanding their physical requirements.
For us, no student and no circumstance is too difficult to address.
Our goal is to provide safe, reliable and high quality transportation for school districts and the families they serve. Because ALC focuses only on special transportation needs, we are able to offer a level of personalized service found nowhere else.
It’s not just what we do, it’s what we love to do.
The ALC Model meets districts’ special transportation needs by coordinating a combination of SUVs, minivans, wheelchair accessible vans and sedans to transport McKinney-Vento, special needs, and out-of-district students, as well as hard-to-serve and multi-district trips.
By matching the right vehicle with the right trip, districts no longer have to pay for unused capacity and are able to meet the specific transportation needs of their students. This model also gives districts the ability to expand and contract their fleet to accommodate the ever-changing demands of these student populations.
Today, every dollar counts – especially education dollars. In the budget-strained field of school transportation, the ALC Model allows us to make and verify an exceptionally unique claim: reduced costs and improved service levels.
In fact, ALC can save school districts an average of 20-30%, while never losing sight of each student’s individual needs and unique circumstances. This is a claim we can prove and one that seems hard to ignore.
But don’t just take our word for it, ask our customers.
When it comes to transporting students with special needs, “one size does not fit all”. We understand that each student has unique needs that must be accommodated. By ensuring that each student is matched with the appropriate vehicle, and that each vehicle is efficiently routed, ALC is able to reduce costs for the school district and help minimize the amount of time each student spends in transit to and from school.
In addition to a school bus, your students may be transported in one of the following vehicle types:
Not just anyone will do when it comes to serving children with special transportation needs. That’s why we take great care to make sure that anyone driving your students is fully qualified and capable of addressing each student’s unique challenges; and is compassionate and respectful of the children and families you serve.
Consistency – it’s important to your students and it’s important to ALC. That’s why we strive to ensure that each student rides with the same driver every day. As a result, the students enjoys more stability, familiarity, security and trust.
Because we not only match the vehicle but also the driver with the individual needs of each student, drivers view their role as having made a commitment to serving “their” students each and every day.
