“Two industry veterans and experts like John and I fully endorse the product(s) and are working jointly with PTS to educate the market and save lives.” – Charlie Bruce

Charlie Bruce

Transportation Advisory Group
President / Founder

Charlie Bruce’s extensive experience were gained through working for (2) Fortune 500 companies and over 300 school districts. With humble beginnings as a technician for Ryder in the early 80’s, Bruce’s career catapulted to senior officer level in the Nation’s largest transportation companies, including Chief Operating Officer for North America’s two largest pupil transportation companies. Bruce realized the need for a hands-on experienced operator who can help school districts to improve student transportation operations while generating savings to keep the educators in the classrooms. “When school budgets are in jeopardy, it’s the students who end up paying the price”, Bruce says. TAG’s mission is to help reduce the strain on budgets that result from inefficiencies and/or poor service to a community in regards to their pupil transportation.
