Alone, we can do so little; together, we can do so much.
- Helen Keller
Our commitment to student safety extends beyond our school doors.
The BDS Fleet
Along with our innovative and individualized education programs and therapeutic interventions, Beacon Day School offers our students transportation services to and from campus. Additionally, students attending Community Based Instruction (CBI) will also be transported in a Beacon Day School vehicle.
Transporting our students to and from school and during our CBI outings is something we do with great care: we know we're carrying precious cargo. Our drivers are trained extensively in student routes and safe driving protocols, and accompanying BIs provide our passengers with 1:1 individualized assistance so our drivers can concentrate on the road and ensure a safe, smooth ride for all. Our commitment to our students’ safety extends beyond our school doors; making sure our passengers–-your children–-arrive safe and sound wherever we are taking them is of paramount importance.
We know we're carrying precious cargo.
Our transportation vehicles include a fleet of white, unmarked vans and sedans, all of which undergo extensive, routine maintenance and safety checks. We’ve optimized transportation security by adding a state-of-the art GPS tracking system to all of our vehicles using.

Student Safety is our #1 Priority
Real-Time Location & Traffic Data
Parents will be informed immediately of any transportation conflicts that may affect their child’s pick-up or drop-off schedule.
Immediate Roadside Assistance
Should our vehicle encounter a flat tire or mechanical problem, our software allows immediate location tracking and communication between our transportation crew and BDS support staff.
Rapid Response Time
In the event of an illness or a behavioral challenge, our transportation crew can quickly alert BDS using the cell phone equipped in every vehicle, and support can be dispatched.
Peace of Mind
Parents provide their signatures directly on the cell phone at pick up and drop off. This immediately sends a confirmation back to BDS, allowing both staff and parents to stay informed.
