THE WORD SAFETY IS NOT JUST A CATCH WORD AT GROOME TRANSPORTATION
Our principal focus is on maintaining every possible safe conduct and policy measure to assure protection of our customers, employees and the general public. All statutory DOT and Federal Motor Carrier rules and regulations are adhered to at each Groome location. Safety meetings, compliance audits and annual reviews are regularly conducted to assure consistent, safe practices throughout our company’s landscape, day in and day out.
We have the highest standards when it comes to maintaining our fleet of buses, vans and cars. Every vehicle in the Groome Transportation fleet is strictly maintained on prescribed schedules by our professional maintenance staff. With the safety of our customers and employees as a focus, we never cut corners when it comes to properly maintaining each vehicle. If a vehicle needs servicing, it gets serviced. If a vehicle needs tires, it gets tires. If a vehicle needs brakes, it gets brakes. No component is left unchecked, and all activity is properly recorded. Externally, we keep the fleet spic-and-span, and our customers notice. If there is a scratch, ding or blemish, we repair them all. No one pays more attention to the proper care of vehicles than Groome Transportation.
DRIVER TRAINING – WE ARE PASSENGER TRANSPORTATION SPECIALISTS.
Driver qualification and training are key components of Groome Transportation’s operating plan. As a result, Groome drivers are a unique group of passenger transportation specialists. Each one has passed rigorous background check and pre-employment screening for physical ability and condition. They all have received initial driving and safety training instruction, as well as customer care reviews. All drivers are in uniform with Groome logos embroidered on their shirts and caps for easy recognition and to present a neat, professional appearance.
Topical safety meetings are held at each location to add to each driver’s continuing knowledge of safe practices. Quarterly random screening assures compliance with substance avoidance requirements. Annual physicals are provided by the company at designated local medical clinics to assure DOT physical standards are met by each driver.
At Groome Transportation, we pride ourselves on the use of state-of-the-art vehicles designed for your comfort and safety. Every seat has a seat belt, and every vehicle has DOT- prescribed safety equipment on board. Additionally, we utilize on-board cameras facing front and back to record any unusual event or rough terrain. Every specification we incorporate into our vehicles is geared to proper care of passengers and employees. Whether it is one of our 29 passenger minibuses or an 11 passenger Transit van, we insist on a great ride, secure luggage, and safe passage on every trip.
Not all vehicles are available at all locations.
Three Generations of Groome Transportation
A Family Business is Born
Groome Transportation was founded by Harold V. Groome, Sr., to provide school bus transportation in Henrico County, near Richmond, Virginia.
Airport Shuttles Launched
Service to Richmond International Airport, formerly Richard E. Byrd Field, began in an effort to better serve the growing Richmond community while better capitalizing on the increased use of air travel.
Military Transport Added to Richmond-Area Services
In the 1950s, Groome Transportation’s operational focus grew to include service from Byrd Field to Fort Lee and Fort Pickett and to several other locations within the city of Richmond.
Expansion Through Diversification
The company’s offerings changed significantly in the 1960s. Groome Transportation diversified and also operated a fleet of 18-wheelers and freight docks as well as a rental car company.
