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.
