We are your neighbors, friends, customers, fellow church members, and relatives.

We are the group that you trust to transport your children to and from school, trips, sport and music events, hundreds of times a year.

We take that trust very much to heart and accept the great responsibility it entails.

Why are these things important?

 

PUBLIC CONFIDENCE AND TRUST.

Multi- generational relationships are very common within the Roxbury community, brought about by the fact that for many years Roxbury drivers have brought and continue to bring a strong sense of stability and familiarity to established, extended families in our community. It is not unusual for a driver to meet a former passenger with his or her child, (a current passenger) in a local store or restaurant. Only time and continuity can create this sense of community oneness.

 

PROFESSIONALISM

Roxbury drivers are very aware that professionalism is much demanded and appreciated by the community; they adhere to the rules and regulations stressed in drivers training and meetings.

Roxbury drivers get mandated physical exams, and fit- for- duty certifications on a required, regulated basis to ensure their medical fitness.

Drivers are required to inspect their vehicle daily to ensure that they are road - ready and must provide a paper trail to validate this practice.

 

FAMILIARITY

Roxbury drivers know the lay of the land; everyone who drives anywhere, knows that it is safer and more efficient to travel in familiar surroundings. This is especially important during inclement weather and road hazard conditions where, if needed , detours and rerouting can easily be accomplished making the trip safer for everyone.

In this time of national uncertainty regarding possible terroristic activity, locally stressed by our police at an information/training drivers meeting, our parents are spared the worry about strangers picking up and transporting their children. They know us and they trust us.

This leads us to the subject of

OUTSOURCING

A compelling parallel can be drawn between the very politically relevant national outcry to keep American jobs in America, as a way to boost our national economy ,  and the outsourcing of Roxbury transportation jobs.  Since outside contractors are naturally paid for their services, doesn’t it make perfect sense to give these jobs to Roxbury drivers? Our drivers have handled these runs for years:  why would we not want to continue to have our drivers serve our school community and at the same time provide much needed opportunities to help our drivers earn extra wages.

Why would we want to create or contribute to any hardships that outsourcing can cause in our community?

I cannot imagine that anyone here would willingly deprive our Roxbury drivers of the ability to maintain and improve their circumstance. In addition, there are several very good reasons why all after school trips and shuttles should be kept within the Roxbury transportation staff. The first and foremost is our long standing record of safety.

PUBLIC CONFIDENCE AND TRUST IS BUILT ON A HISTORY THAT ROXBURY DRIVERS CREATED AND IN WHICH THEY TAKE GREAT PRIDE.

Roxbury Parents are very familiar with the local Roxbury drivers and have a long history of entrusting their children to them.

Most of the Roxbury drivers live in Roxbury, as members of the community they have a vested interest in maintaining a positive and professional image.

Monies earned by Roxbury drivers tends to stay within the community :  extra work = extra pay = extra discretionary funds.

We support local businesses, churches, community based activities and a myriad of business suppliers.

We have always been a cohesive group of professionals who work together to get the job DONE. We have a long history of safe and efficient execution of our duties, we know who we are, we know our jobs, we get our jobs DONE!

WE ARE ROXBURY DRIVERS!
