Our Story

Transportation should never be a barrier to a quality education.

As schools move away from one-size-fits-all, school transportation is stuck, delivering poor safety, service, and cost, especially for our most vulnerable kids. Incumbents have no incentive to innovate or to adapt to new dynamic needs.

In 2018, 4MATIV’s founders resolved that we could no longer stand by and watch the education landscape evolve while school transportation idled.

4MATIV set out to turn transportation from a liability into an asset for schools.

The 4MATIV track record

We currently manage millions of dollars in annual transportation budgets, saving schools and school systems up to 40% on yearly transportation costs while improving the transportation experiences for students, families and school frontline staff. We excel in serving the most vulnerable student populations—children with special needs and children experiencing homelessness.

Leveraging Stimulus Funding in Support of the Future of School Transportation

4MATIV experts, clients, and partners, discuss how to target stimulus dollars to make a sustainable investment in your school mobility system. Hear from Aleesia Johnson (Superintendent of Indianapolis Public Schools), Carl Allen (President of 4MATIV Technologies), Rajeev Bajaj (Partner and CEO of Kitamba), and Dave Hersh (Director of Proving Ground- Center for Education Policy Research at Harvard University).
