Industry Leaders to Discuss How to Overcome Escalating Transportation Costs and Decreasing Resources

Once again we are looking forward to our time at ASBO where we can discuss many of the common challenges that school business officials are dealing with and how they can overcome them.

The TransPar Group of Companies announced that representatives will be attending the Association of School Business Officials (ASBO) International Annual Meeting and Expo, where top school business leaders convene to hear from industry experts. The event will take place from September 21-24 at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center in Kissimmee, Florida.

“Once again we are looking forward to our time at ASBO where we can discuss many of the common challenges that school business officials are dealing with and how they can overcome them,” stated Tim Ammon, Chief Business Development Officer of TransPar Group of Companies. “There are practical and effective solutions available to increase efficiencies while reducing costs as it pertains to safety training, managing student behavior, driver recruitment and staffing, utilizing technology, vehicle replacement and more.”

Ammon will lead the presentation, Identifying Key Cost Drivers to Manage Transportation Budgets, at the event on Saturday, September 22nd, from 3:15-4:15pm. “Transportation costs are escalating and resources are decreasing so many school districts are finding themselves in a serious crunch,” explained Ammon, “and they need options to determine the most effective service model for their specific circumstances.”

The session will identify the key considerations when evaluating transportation costs and describe how to evaluate alternatives to existing transportation models. Ammon will discuss how reductions in one area of the budget can have consequences elsewhere and cover how to prepare for operational traps before they cause major disruptions to service levels.

“ASBO’s audience is a good one in that they are continually seeking out ways to improve their transportation systems and bring stability and reasonability to an often uncertain service,” added Ammon. “Our team and I look forward to meeting with many of those in attendance who are seeking how best to identify the critical elements of transportation costs, wanting to develop an analytical framework to determine the best operating model for their district, and interested in identifying the opportunities to control transportation costs while mitigating negative operational impacts.”

Representatives from the TransPar Group of Companies will be available to discuss school transportation and answer questions at ASBO Booth #925.
