The Genesee Intermediate School District (GISD) operates transportation services for special education and career technical education students. These services are provided on behalf of a multi-district consortia in an effort to offer a cost-effective transportation program for districts that participate.


The GISD Specialized Transportation Consortium started operations in 1997. The consortium consists of 21 school districts. Special needs students are transported to and from GISD’s center programs and to a number of Project CHOICE sites within GISD’s service area. The consortium generates approximately $1.5 million in savings for participating school districts each year.

The GCI Transportation Consortium started operations in 2004. In 2014, the Genesee Intermediate School District bought the GCI and renamed the building the Genesee Career Institute. It currently consists of 19 school districts and generates approximately $450,000 in savings for these districts each year.
