The Wooden Shoe Minibus Transportation System
undergoes bi-annual inspection of all school buses as required by the New York State Department of Transportation. The New York State Department of Motor Vehicles ensures that our drivers are certified,
responsible, cautious adults with a CDL license. Our buses are equipped with all the latest safety devices. Each driver is provided with a cellular phone so two-way communication is always possible. Door-to-door service is available upon request. All children under the age of four are required to be secured in a federally approved car seat. Each driver's license is reviewed and reported to the school each year. All bus drivers are fingerprinted, certified in CPR, basic First Aid, and school bus safety training. A "behind the wheel" driving test as well as a written exam pertaining to all current school bus regulations is required annually. All our bus drivers are employed by The Wooden Shoe and are not contracted by an outside transportation company. They are mandated to follow federal guidelines for random testing for drug and alcohol use.
