About 20 million children — more than half of all pre-high school students in the United States — have to travel over two miles to school, and more than half of children ride to school in a private vehicle. Alternative transportation, defined as transportation of between one and five students in small-capacity vehicles, offers school districts a safe, cost-effective solution to provide crucial transportation services to students, especially those with unique needs.
EverDriven is the leader in alternative student transportation for school districts nationwide. With over 600 active school district contracts and over 21,000 students last year alone, EverDrive has established itself as the nationwide safety and technology service enablement leader in alternative student transportation. Leveraging its proprietary Smart Routing Technology and custom-tailored services, the company has been a driving force in alleviating driver shortages, accommodating varying bell times, and serving unique student needs related to the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, special needs, ESSA, hard-to-serve trips, and out-of-district placements.
