Mission Statement


The Members of the Massachusetts Special Needs Transportation Task Force, with the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education,
have an abiding commitment to high quality, cost-effective transportation for the Commonwealth’s students with disabilities who require such services.  The
Task Force has an unmitigated belief that this can be accomplished by creating efficiencies in routing students by utilizing a shared multi-district approach, or participating in regional transportation network systems that have been established across the Commonwealth. Further, the Task Force believes that it is imperative for all school districts to participate in these joint efforts, taking a leadership role in creating greater cost efficiencies while maintaining and supporting the highest quality of service in the area of special needs transportation. By working together, we can best serve all students.
