Genesee Intermediate School District operates a transportation fleet that includes 123 buses and vans that travel a total of nearly 2.5 million miles per year. Clearly, saving dollars has been essential for the ongoing stability of this operation. As a result, GISD has implemented GPS navigation and tracking systems that have helped account for equipment location and actual staff time on task. GISD has also explored bulk purchasing of fuel, implemented regional operation hubs throughout the county, and decentralized mechanical services, in addition to establishing a radio transmission system infrastructure for advanced safety, crisis management, and streamlined routing systems.

The Genesee Intermediate School District (GISD) operates transportation services for special education and career technical education students. These services are provided on behalf of a multi-district consortia in an effort to offer a cost-effective transportation program for districts that participate.


The GISD Specialized Transportation Consortium started operations in 1997. The consortium consists of 21 school districts. Special needs students are transported to and from GISD's center programs and to a number of Project CHOICE sites within GISD's service area. The consortium generates approximately $1.5 million in savings for participating school districts each year.

The Genesee Career Institute Transportation Consortium started operations in 2004. In 2014, the Genesee Intermediate School District bought the GCI and renamed the building the Genesee Career Institute. It currently consists of 21 school districts and generates approximately $450,000 in savings for these districts each year.


The following services are provided by Transportation Services:

  • CPI Restraint Training
  • Training for drivers and aides in various medical procedures for student needs
  • Transportation for over 1,100 special needs students
  • Transportation for over 1,600 career technical education students
