YONKERS, N.Y. – Mile Square Transportation of Lower Westchester County is partnering with First Student Inc., North America’s largest student transportation provider.

Under the name First Mile Square, the company will provide student transportation services in the Hudson Valley, Westchester and The Bronx.
