History of Ponce Bus Service

How it all began...

  Dear Reader, During the summer of 1994 many of the parents of the students that I transported were asking if the cost of transportation could be reduced. As a bus driver working for someone else. I had no control over the prices charged to people needing private transportation. I understood their need, because I had been there. As a mother of three I needed reliable, safe, and affordable transportation for my children. This embarked me on the journey of becoming a bus driver. The schools that I transported to were the same schools that my children attended. Eventually I would own a private bus transportation business.

We are growing...

  In 1995 Ponce Bus Service was started with one 12 passenger club wagon. Due to constantly increasing demand within 5 months, there was the need to purchase a full-size school bus with a capacity of 66 passengers. In less than a year we acquired 3 more buses, each with a capacity of 47 plus passengers; as the demand grew beyond our expectations. Later we were subcontracted by the well-known Goodman Bus Service. Eventually we got a contract with the charter school, Raul Yzaguirrre in 1999. Today we currently own over 13 school buses and provide service to numerous charter schools, public schools, and multiple organizations.

 When I began my business, it was my goal to helpe other women too. They were trained so that they could obtain their Commercial driver’s license and also receive their school bus driving certifications. Some of these women have gone on to start their own private school bus transportation and other’s went on to work for various school district as bus drivers.   

Giving back to the community...

  To repay the community that we love so much, and for the trust bestowed upon us; we have provided free trips to churches, schools, and various community agencies. When needed, we have donated  free bus transportation for students in need of tutoring on saturday mornings.

We at Ponce Bus Service are proud to have been able to serve our community, and will continue to do so as the need arises.
