Melissa Independent School District (ISD) had 20-year-old vehicles that were unreliable and expensive to maintain. The district was rapidly growing, so capital budgets were tight and purchasing new vehicles did not make the cut. Ultimately, the district realized that they needed to find an alternative for the safety of its employees and students.
Enterprise Fleet Management helped Melissa ISD select vehicles best suited for their district, and created a uniform fleet with new, white vehicles. The district has decided not to hold onto vehicles for ten or more years and instead, proactively replaces vehicles every 3-4 years. This change allows the district to build a sustainable vehicle strategy allowing for growth and fixed budgeting for all their fleet needs. Updated vehicles with the latest safety standards help the district offer the safest transportation possible for its employees and students.
Additionally, with the vehicle maintenance program the district can accrue for maintenance expenditures, eliminating the maintenance spend fluctuations previously felt by the aged fleet. The program helps drivers significantly reduce unexpected downtime and allowed the district employees to better focus on their students.
