SOUTH FALLSBURG, N.Y. – Feb. 10, 2016 — Rolling V Bus Corp., a leading provider of passenger transportation in the Catskills Region, announced today that 35 of its drivers were honored with GreenRoad Fleet Elite memberships for their outstanding safety performance in 2015.
Admittance into the Fleet Elite is the top award given by GreenRoad to drivers who have earned exceptional safety scores of five or lower for the year. Overall, drivers who score 20 or below are deemed safe, while scores ranking above 20 indicate increased risk with each additional point. On top of securing an outstanding safety score, drivers must also have completed a minimum of 500 hours of driving time throughout the course of the year.
“We are thrilled to celebrate the recognition of 35 Rolling V drivers among the list of GreenRoad Fleet Elite members,” said Linda Kleingardner, Rolling V Operations Manager. “Our drivers’ membership in this distinguished program allows us to strengthen the safety of our bus programs and provide higher quality service to our patrons. We’re proud to have them as safety leaders of our Rolling V team.”
The following is a comprehensive list of Rolling V drivers who are members of the GreenRoad Fleet Elite:
Delaware County Early Intervention Program
Delaware County Medical Transport
Ellenville Central School District
Fallsburg Central School District
Liberty Central School District
Jason J. Moreno
Roscoe Central School District

Tri-Valley Central School District
Each year, Rolling V drivers are responsible for the safe transportation of more than 7,000 school children. The GreenRoad driver performance service became part of Rolling V’s programming in 2009 as a way to reinforce passenger transportation drivers’ safety processes and awareness. Since the program’s launch, Rolling V has experienced positive results and responses from its drivers.
“GreenRoad’s Fleet Elite celebrates and motivates our safest drivers,” said Nicole Dungey, Rolling V safety director. “It’s important to Rolling V that our drivers go above and beyond when it comes to the security of our passengers. Through this program, we are able to commend drivers who are leaders in safety while encouraging others to follow suit.”
In its passenger transportation program and beyond, Rolling V demonstrates that safety is a core company value. In recent years, the Rolling V Maintenance Department has consistently ranked in the top 10 percent of New York carriers by the New York State Department of Transportation.
“Throughout every branch of Rolling V, our drivers understand that the safety of the people we serve comes first at all times,” added Vallone. “By having our priorities straight, we challenge our hard-working team to be their best every day, and ensure we provide trusted services year after year.”
