The Kids Come First
Don Thomas Buses provide service in NYC, Bronx and Westchester.
Because of the nature of childrens transportation, open communications and a cooperative approach between parents, students, teachers, drivers, special education supervisors, transportation supervisors and monitors is key to help ensure that safe, reliable and efficient services are provided. Once an Individual Education Plan (IEP) team has determined that a student will require transportation as a related service, routing becomes an important part of the student’s success equation.
Our aim is to support each student’s educational goals and to make each trip to and from school as pleasant and uneventful as possible. As expert providers in childrens transportation, our team can help make sure that the education locations, equipment and vehicle needs, personnel needs, pick up points, drop off points and times, will be taken into proper consideration.

Special Needs Kids
Our aim is to make each trip to and from school as pleasant as possible.
School transportation is unique to each special needs student, and our company has a long history of partnering with districts for special needs transportation services because of the unique requirements. In its early years, Don Thomas concentrated in special education transportation. This specialization has helped us to nurture a unique commitment to quality service that remains throughout our company.
We have maintained our passion for servicing the special needs community as we have grown our business. We are privileged to transport special needs students to and from school safely.
