About Us


As long as there have been public schools, educators have grappled with the issue of student transportation. Even as far back as 1910, many of them borrowed horse-drawn carts from local farmers to get children to and from school each day. Though the mode of transportation has improved since then, today’s school districts still struggle with financial, administrative, and operational issues when it comes to student transportation.

Fortunately, there’s 4.0 School Services.

Beginning as the Prairie Bus Service in 1994, we took an innovative approach to student transportation. Unlike many other private contractors, we considered every opportunity a potential partnership; a chance to serve the needs of the schools as well as the communities at large. We worked with administrators and educators, recognizing and resolving the challenges they faced every day. In fact, we developed a reputation throughout the state as “the company that is easy to do business with.



4.0 School Services earns high marks in all the areas that matter most. Back in 1994, 4.0 School Services took an innovative approach to student transportation.
