Gray line Tennessee

Challenge: When a transit provider was interested in expanding its charter school transportation business, they turned to Ezell Consulting to explore feasibility.

Background: In Music City, tourism plays a major role in our economy and Gray Line has been serving this sector of our community for more than 40 years. Gray Line wanted to explore how they could expand the use of their fleet of buses and vehicles to serve more of Nashville’s growing charter school network.

Solution: Acting as a six-month complement to Gray Line’s staff and drawing on Ezell Consulting’s familiarity with the MNPS charter school community, Kate Ezell partnered with Gray Line to research this business opportunity. Beginning with an in-depth review of Gray Line’s operations, capabilities, and excess capacity, Ezell Consulting:

  • Analyzed Gray Line’s existing charter school transportation contracts.

  • Researched the regional school transportation industry and best practices nationwide.

  • Introduced Gray Line to new charter school operators to investigate relationship potential.

  • Scheduled client reviews of service delivery on existing Gray Line contracts.
