Fleet Maintenance Policies & Procedures
The goal of STI’s professional Maintenance Team is to partner with every level of management and provide maximum vehicle safety and reliability. Our Maintenance Council is comprised of managers and other regional leadership with experience in the areas of preventive maintenance, repair, warranty reclamation, and manufacturer recommendations. The Council's objective is to provide our customers with the safest, most reliable, and cost-efficient fleet possible through the development, implementation, and monitoring of best practices related to fleet maintenance. The Council is committed to these tasks and to preserving the safety and health of our passengers, employees, and the communities in which we serve.
The knowledge and training of our Maintenance Team is vital to the safety of our vehicles. Our mechanics receive regular in-service training to ensure they remain current with vehicle manufacturer standards and are encouraged to increase their proficiency by participating in STI's Advancement Through Commitment program, which sponsors mechanics interested in earning their ASE Master School Bus Technician Certification. Currently, more than half of STI's maintenance has achieved this esteemed level of knowledge, helping to make STI’s Maintenance Team among the safest in the industry.
