South Fallsburg, N.Y. (October 15, 2013) – Rolling V Bus Corp., a Sullivan County-based bus transportation company, continues to invest in improving customer service with the relocation of its Human Resources (HR) Department to a centralized location in Liberty, N.Y. and a $2 million investment in new vehicles.
With nearly 350 employees and terminals in Ellenville, Fallsburg, Liberty, Livingston Manor, Neversink, Roscoe and Walton, Rolling V’s recent growth has spawned the need for a new location for its HR department. Liberty is a more central location than its current facility headquartered in Fallsburg and will ultimately offer a better customer experience.
Christine Knickerbocker, Human Resources Director at Rolling V, said, “Rolling V employees now have better access to the HR department. This efficiency will result in greater employee satisfaction and increased retention, which will help Rolling V better serve its employees and its customers – the youth of the region.”
The move will allow for streamlined management of personnel needs, such as benefits programs, improve compliance in more private setting, and provide additional expansion opportunities. Rolling V’s human resource practices are based upon the company’s core philosophy and values by providing meaningful employment and prompt, professional and personalized response to employee needs.
In addition to the recent relocation of human resources, Rolling V has also recently invested $2 million in new school transportation vehicles for use in the South Fallsburg, Ellenville, Neversink, Livingston Manor, Liberty and Walton terminals.
The 24 late-model buses and vans range in size and fuel type. All of the units are gasoline and diesel-powered and offer the best value when contemplating acquisition, maintenance and longevity. They are fuel efficient and have the latest low emissions technology.
“While we contemplated jumping into the alternatively fueled vehicle market (propane and electric), our research brought us back to conventionally powered units,” said Rolling V President Phil Vallone. “We feel they still offer the best value and their advancements in lowering emissions bolstered our decision making. We continue to monitor the progress of these alternatively fueled models on the market and when the time is right add them to our fleet when it makes good economic sense.”
Vallone added, “Rolling V is extremely dedicated to doing everything possible to increase school bus transportation safety. After all, the safety of our customers is and always has been our number one priority.”
Rolling V Bus Corp. is a proud member of the New York School Bus Contractors Association and the American School Bus Council. The company is family-owned and operated by the Vallone and DeSabato families. The Vallone family has been in the passenger transportation business for more than 50 years.
