The Parma City School District serves over 11,500 students in grades K-12 residing in the cities of Parma, Parma Heights and Seven Hills, operates approximately 100 vehicles and is district owned and operated.



"We are thrilled to have the Parma City School District join our TSC Partners Club," stated Doug Martin, Vice President for TSC. "They are progressive thought leaders and one of the leading school districts in Northern Ohio. We are helping them with new, innovative solutions for their transportation system and they are embracing ways to make their operations more cost efficient. The district will be able to take advantage of our custom designed programs created to help lower the cost of operations. Parma is our first school district in Ohio to join the Club and we are excited to work closely with them to enhance service levels, increase safety and reduce costs. We look forward to growing our footprint in the Buckeye State and throughout the Midwest by demonstrating and providing solutions that work for schools to reduce their cost and improve their operations. The more schools that join the Club, the more that can take advantage of the new technology and vast services that we bring. With aging fleets, driver shortages and the availability of new technologies, we are hearing from more and more schools today that clearly need some help. Our in-house routing and optimization team reduces vehicles, ensures driver compliance and, of course, products like SafeStop, the innovative app which tracks bus and student arrivals for parents and school officials, is what parents are looking for today. This is all about improving and saving dollars using technology and our expertise which allows educators to use those funds more efficiently."
