Absolutely. In fact, our coverage exceeds current regulatory requirements. We have a customized insurance coverage specifically designed for transporting children, and have worked closely with our insurance brokers to establish and monitor ongoing safety procedures.
Are the drivers' vehicles inspected?
What is included in the inspection?
The 19-point vehicle inspection is an industry standard mechanics use to evaluate and ensure a car’s safety and operability. This inspection covers testing that ranges from fluids to the suspension system. All vehicles must be certified by a professional mechanic and be 10 years old or newer.
Can the parents interview the driver to ensure that they agree with the selection?
When a driver is paired with a student, the driver and the area coordinator schedule a visit to the family to meet the parents and the students. The service begins after the parents give their approval of the driver.
Do you monitor cell phone use while the drivers are driving?
We monitor every ride via live GPS tracking. Because of our proprietary advanced technological system, we are able to detect phone usage for each driver. Adroit has a zero tolerance policy when it comes to texting or talking while driving.
What if there is an accident?
Will my child have the same driver all school year?
Adroit strives to keep the same driver and two sub-drivers for the whole school year unless the parents or school district request otherwise.
