4Seasons’ CEO Brooke Garcia Receives 15th Annual Peter J. Grandolfo Memorial Award of Excellence

Today 4Seasons Transportation CEO Brooke Garcia is recognized by Student Transportation News, Q’Straint and Sure-Lok for excellence in student transportation with the 2022 Peter J. Grandolfo Memorial Award of Excellence! Each year, this dignified award is presented to just one school transportation professional who exhibits exemplary service to schoolchildren, especially those with disabilities.

Garcia leads 4Seasons’ vision to affect change in the lives of students with disabilities by being the leading accessible school bus company. She champions the organization’s mission to transport students living with disabilities in a safe, calm and compassionate way.

Garcia began driving special needs school bus routes for 4Seasons in 2010. Within a decade, she ran the entire company. After she became an owner of 4Seasons several years ago, Garcia has grown the company from eight employees to 500. Though an individual award, Garcia said her win validates the work of her entire team.

“This meant a lot for our company to be recognized as doing excellent work in the special needs industry,” says 4Seasons CEO, Brooke Garcia. “For myself as a leader in the special needs transportation industry, it was really important for us to be recognized with the Peter Grandolfo Award. We work with children with disabilities day in and out. And for our drivers and our teams and all our staff, it’s a lot of work. To be recognized for a legacy of work is something that’s very special and something we’re very appreciative of.”

Garcia has also been featured in Avenue Magazine’s Top 40 Under 40 in 2021 and twice won awards from the City of Calgary. As a thought leader in the transportation industry, she regularly speaks at forums such as The United Nations World Summit on Accessible Tourism and International Conference on Disability and Diversity. In 2021, Garcia was also recognized as an International Transportation Leader and Calgary Business Leader.
