CHICAGO, Nov. 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- 160 Driving Academy acquires National Tractor Trailer School (NTTS) locations in Buffalo and Liverpool, New York.
The National Tractor Trailer School, previously owned by Swift Transportation, closed their doors and stopped accepting new students as of April 27th, 2023. With the acquisition of NTTS by 160 Driving Academy these schools in Buffalo and Syracuse are now open for business and enrolling students.
With the lack of the Commercial Driving Schools in upstate New York, 160 Driving Academy, continues to expand in national footprint of schools by entering the Syracuse and Buffalo markets. As the largest commercial driving school in the nation with an unparalleled level of recruiting, high-quality training, safety effectiveness, and driver analytics, 160 Driving Academy is ready to help those who have been wanting to pursue a career in the trucking industry. Combined with its acquisition of Professional Driving Institute in Rochester, New York earlier this summer, 160 Driving Academy now has three campuses in upstate New York as it continues its expansion plans in the Northeast and New York markets.
CEO of 160 Driving Academy, Steve Gold, remarked: "We are excited to acquire the NTTS schools in Buffalo and Liverpool from Swift Transportation. NTTS has a long-term and excellent reputation providing high-quality training and student success for these communities. We aim to continue to build on NTTS's reputation as we provide our 160-hour training for the Buffalo and Syracuse residents, agencies and employer partners. With three schools in New York state, we will look to further expand our footprint as we have in the other 45 States where we operate. As an advocate for all of our students in need of high-paying jobs we will continue to provide the highest quality, local training for our students that leads to direct job placement in the transportation industry."
