Cost Analysis Tool


This analysis was designed as a tool to assist school district officials in determining the actual annual cost of operation of their transportation fleet, in order to provide accurate figures for comparison to outsourced transportation services.  Because of varying state regulations and regional practices, some districts may have costs not represented below; be sure to figure those costs in as well.  Also remember to deduct from the line items any costs that would remain under contracted service.  (For example, if you would continue to employ a mechanic to work on vehicles not used for student transportation, deduct that person’s pay and benefits from the appropriate lines.)   Use figures for the most recent complete school or fiscal year.
