School Transport

What you need to know…

At GEMS American Academy Qatar, our priority is the safety of the children in our care and we strive to provide a friendly and caring environment designed to remove any stress and concern; we ensure that your children are safely transported from home to school and back.

Below, you will find several reasons for you to choose the School Bus Services.  If you need to know why taking the school bus is a good idea, then read on….

  • It’s sociable:  Riding to school with friends is fun!  School bus riders have a chance to mix with children of different ages.
  • It encourages independence: Getting yourself on the right bus at the right time, with all the bags, snacks and school supplies that you need for the day, teaches children about self-reliance from a young age.
  • It’s greener: More children on the bus means fewer cars on the road.  This means less traffic and lower emissions.  Therefore, the impact of your choice to use school transportation can touch many others in a positive way.
  • Designed for working parents: They can continue their work day in the mental comfort that their children are safe.
  • Hassle-free travel: No need for parents to travel in traffic congestion to drop-off and pick-up children.
  • Economical: Our services are highly affordable as we charge a flat rate based on the location.  Parents have the flexibility to choose from one way or round trip service.

Safety & Reliability

  • All busses are equipped with dedicated mobile phones to ensure they always remain in contact.
  • All buses are equipped with CCTV surveillance cameras. This mechanism ensures that your child’s experience on the bus is of the highest level. The surveillance camera footage will only be accessed by the Principal and senior management.
  • Bus guardians are placed on all buses to support and actively monitor the students.
  • Vehicles are comprehensively checked daily by two dedicated teams to ensure no child is left behind on the bus.  In addition, the cleaning staff cleans and disinfects the bus each day.
  • Drivers are assessed and trained on a regular basis as per the transport regulations with refresher courses.
  • Our highly-trained and experienced school team will personally escort the elementary children to and from the vehicle to the school. This process ensures that all students are delivered safely to their classroom destinations.
