New school bus contractor for Anglophone East School District (Moncton NB)

Recommended Posts

The contract has changed hands yet again after Stock did their 5 years. Coach Atlantic Group managed to be the winning bidder at $5.6 million which will see them operate 33 regular route buses plus spares for 3 years plus 2 renewal option years. I just hope the low bid didn't happen because of slashed drivers pay like in the past. It was a kick in the pants back in 1992 to go from $12+ per hour with benefits to $8/hr at 4 hours per day max and no benefits. Pay, benefits and union representation had improved once Laidlaw then First Student ran things but I haven't followed employee relations since Stock came in so I have no idea if the union carried on or got voted out. 

I am curious to see what they bring in for a fleet. Coach Atlantic's bus sales division (TransCon International) is a Lion Bus distributor but the company also has a good relationship with IC Bus.
