An important ingredient to a successful transportation facility is an effective fleet maintenance system. Many processes must be effectively combined to produce a dependable, safe and quality transportation service. These processes rely on drivers, dispatchers, office staff as well as the mechanics that work on the vehicles. Since the 1920's, the Ventura Union High School District has provided vehicle maintenance and repair on vehicles used by schools in the city of Ventura. In 1966 the Ventura Union High School District unified with several elementary districts in the area. They formed the Ventura Unified School District. The Fleet Services Office has an excellent reputation for service and we continuously work daily to build on it. Our Mechanics are certified through the National Institute of "Automotive Service Excellence (ASE)." This certification is the national standard in the automotive repair industry and now has certification specific to school bus repair. Our Lead Mechanic is a certified school bus technician. Our Mechanic II is a certified Master Automobile Technician as well as a certified school bus technician. Our thoroughly trained staff is here to help. The safest place a child can be is on a school bus, maintained by well-trained qualified mechanics.
