Dousman Transport Co., Inc. was founded in June of 1962 by Robert W. Southcott, after he had purchased the assets of a bus company started in the late 1940’s by Edwin and Helen Ortmann in Dousman, Wis. Those assets included 24 buses, the oldest of which was an International Harvester dating back to 1946. The bus company was located at S2005 Main St. in the Town of Ottawa, but after it was annexed to the Village of Dousman the new address became 313 S. Main St.
Today Dousman Transport safely transports approximately 30,000 students over 20,000 miles each school day. None of this would be possible without all of the dedicated and caring employees that Dousman Transport has had throughout the years!
The safety of your children is our primary goal. We take pride in having well trained, responsible and conscientious professional drivers. Dousman Transport can be characterized as a close-knit company that strives to maintain and improve the excellent safety record that our drivers have established over the years. Everyone works as part of a team, helping each other to do his or her job well. The drivers of Dousman Transport are the company’s most valuable assets. They are our daily contact with schools, parents and students and their actions influence those people’s opinion of our company.
Our professional drivers are always learning. Therefore, we provide opportunities and expect participation in our various safety programs as an ongoing effort to help our drivers develop and refine their skills to safely transport students. Parents and students are entitled to a driver who conducts himself/herself in a professional manner.
