What you need to know...

The GEMS Founders School Dubai has outsourced the school transport service to School Transport Services LLC (STS).  STS is the only ISO certified (ISO 9001:2008 and OHSAS 18001: 2007) school transport provider.  STS is the proud winner of the prestigious Dubai Quality Appreciation Programme (DQAP) 2011, Dubai Award for Sustainable Transport 2010 and 2012 in the categories of School Transportation & Transport Safety and is the only ISO certified school transport provider in the region. STS operates the bus fleet, maintaining exceptional safety standards and adhering to the specifications and regulations laid down by the Road Transport Authority of Dubai.  All buses are fitted with Video Surveillance System, Global Positioning Systems and scanners for the purposes of student attendance confirmation and safety.

STS is managed by highly experienced professionals who have a long track record of safe transportation of students.  STS works closely with the school administration team to ensure that parents and students receive the best service possible.

After submitting the Transport Request Form, the STS area specialist will check the route and the pick-up / drop off point to ensure that they are able to offer the service in your area and that the pick-up / drop off point is safe. Once this has been confirmed you will be notified of the timings, bus number, driver’s details and the bus mobile contact number (available at the STS website).
