Transportation Services

Welcome 

Thank you for visiting transportation!  If we can be of any assistance, please give us a call at 810-591-4552.

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.
