Hello, Halifax region!

Welcome to the SOUTHLAND family.

 

 

Our Safely Home Promise

Safely Home is our deep conviction to safety, and it is the ultimate promise we make to each other, to our clients, and to the communities in which we operate. SOUTHLAND is driven by safety. It is our first Core Value and is at the heart of all we do.

Our Mission

To exceed customer expectations by employing talented people who share in the dedication of a company committed to safety and service.

Our People

As a leader in the passenger transportation industry, our people are our most important asset. They are entrusted with the responsibility of getting our passengers Safely Home, each and every day. That’s why we recruit, train, and retain only the best in their field, and why we consistently recognize employees who embody our Core Values.

SOUTHLAND Transportation Ltd. is pleased to have been selected by the Halifax Regional Centre for Education to provide student transportation service, beginning in the 2020/2021 school year! 

SOUTHLAND Transportation is a part of the Pacific Western Group of Companies, a Canadian and family-owned business that was established in 1957. With the addition of the Halifax region to the SOUTHLAND family, we are now a coast-to-coast company!    

SOUTHLAND takes pride in hiring locally and giving back to the communities we serve by supporting local groups and charities. We will be seeking local drivers, mechanics, and operations staff in advance of the 2020/2021 school year. Employees of the current Halifax region student transportation provider and prospective employees that wish to find out more information about joining the SOUTHLAND team for the 2020/2021 school year are encouraged to share their information here, and a recruiter will be in touch. 

 SOUTHLAND is in the midst of sourcing a facility in the region to ensure we meet the customer service expectations of the communities. Our unwavering commitment to student safety and customer service includes a fleet of new propane buses. SOUTHLAND has been utilizing propane as an alternative to diesel fuel since 2007. We currently own and operate the largest propane-fueled fleet of school buses in Canada. As of 2019, this fleet has grown to over 600 buses! Not only is this initiative operationally viable, but it is a proven solution to reduce toxic emissions. Learn more about SOUTHLAND’s sustainability efforts here.

With over 60 years of experience in the student transportation industry, SOUTHLAND has a proven track record for student safety, customer service, and maintenance of a high-quality fleet. We were the first school bus company in Canada to have our training program nationally recognized and certified by the Motor Carrier Passenger Council of Canada. Our complimentary brand of Safely Home is our deep conviction to safety, and it is the ultimate promise we make to each other, to our clients, and to the communities in which we operate.
