Safety & Maintenance

Committed to Safety

Our trained, committed maintenance staff are passionate about learning and safety. They continually participate in motor coach manufacturer training programs, and readily integrate their knowledge into daily practice. We are proud of our preventative maintenance program and the willingness of our staff to rush to rescue in the case of an emergency.

At Parsons we practise making safety a priority. In addition to quarterly safety meetings and inspections, we have regular staff meetings that focus on operational safety. The school bus department also runs safety meetings bi-weekly.

Professional Drivers

up-to-date training

Our drivers participate in our own in-house training program. Developed using materials from the Ontario Motor Coach Association and the United Motorcoach Association, it leverages years of lived experience driving around the province. In addition, our drivers keep their skills up-to-date with Motor Coach Industries Academy.


Our equipment performs because our people perform. Parsons believes in investing in people. Our employees are encouraged to seek out educational opportunities & they are supported throughout the process. Our mechanical technicians regularly attend motor coach specific training, ensuring our equipment is maintained and diagnosed using the most advanced technologies and procedures. Our administrative staff have training in everything from Mental Health First Aid to Project Management. With this investment in the people at Parsons, we can offer superior service to our customers, not just with respect to the reliability of our fleet but also with remarkable inquiry response time, and the ability to build customer relationships that last for decades. Because an investment in us is an investment in you.
