Transportation

We are 12 staff members, 9 mechanics, and approximately 112 bus drivers (regular and substitutes) diligently working to safely transport approximately 16,000 students on a daily basis. We utilize 170 buses at two separate operating locations.  Our desire is for each student to have positive experiences while riding our buses. Our mission is to work with parents and schools to find solutions about student transportation needs to the greatest extent possible. Parents are encouraged to utilize the tools and guidelines outlined on the left side of this page. 

For further assistance, please contact our offices. 
NOTE:  We are hiring bus drivers! If you would like to become a bus driver, click here or call 253-841-8669.
