Palmer Bus Service has been serving the Waseca community by safely transporting students since 2016. We safely transport about 600 students each school day in Waseca, MN.
Waseca School District #829 consists of Waseca High School, Junior High, Intermediate, Hartley and Sacred Heart Elementaries and the Waseca Area Learning Center. We also serve TEAM Academy, a local charter school.
The Waseca community is located in Waseca County, Minnesota and is about 70 miles south of the Twin Cities.
A little bit about Bill:
I've been associated with school buses for 34 years. As a driver, subdriver, mechanic, manager, mechanic and now back to manager. I have worked for several districts and private contractors over the years and have a good idea how they each think and operate. I'm actually still in contact with a few of the students I originally hauled 34 years ago.
My wife Diane and I have 6 kids between us (combined family) and we have 12 grandkids from 2 months old to going to be 17 years old. I've always enjoyed busing and being around the kids.
I'm an Army veteran and still take my oath to service seriously. I guess that's why I've enjoyed school busing. That service and involvement with the kids and the community.
