Peel District School
Student Transportation of Peel Region (STOPR)
This is a rewarding role for a school bus transportation and route planning manager who’s ready to lead transportation operations for STOPR – a transportation consortium functioning on behalf of Peel District School Board (PDSB) and Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board (DPCDSB).
Reporting to the General Manager of Student Transportation of Peel Region, you’ll oversee the daily operations, administration, development and implementation of home-to-school and school-to-home transportation for the Boards, ensuring adherence to both Boards’ policies and to STOPR policies and procedures, and the provision of services in a manner that prioritizes safety and efficiency.
As Manager of Transportation, you’ll not only ensure contract compliance with all nine (9) school bus operator divisions, but also ensure the safety of the 68,000 students getting to and from school daily. An important aspect of your job will be to set up external meetings with Special Education services of PDSB and DPCDSB in order to review start-up issues, program locations, timelines for IPRC reviews, student needs and future planning, as well as approve medical transportation for applicable students.
Given the large area covered by STOPR, this is a sizable mandate, with accountability for managing an annual budget of $76M, supervising and training staff, overseeing GIS software implementations, updates and innovative improvements, as well as reviewing and recommending school hour adjustments for both Boards to maximize routing efficiencies. An excellent communicator and presenter, you’ll manage all department communications, from acting as the media contact for inclement weather early morning calls to updating the website accordingly, and liaise with internal and external stakeholders, such as senior administrators, parents and trustees of both Boards.
With a university degree in Geography/Planning, or Business Administration, or an equivalent combination of relevant post-secondary education through GIS certification courses, and significant experience in managing route planning logistics, you have a solid foundation for success in this key role. Your credentials as Manager of Transportation will also include:
