The vision of the Transportation Department is to provide safe and timely transportation for eligible students, based on state statutes and District policies. Furthermore, it is essential to be innovative and fiscally responsible.
Students residing two (2) miles or more from their home school or on a street deemed hazardous by the police department are eligible for transportation. Walkers are students living within two (2) miles of the school they are attending. All transportation is determined by your residential address.

Bus stop locations are determined to create the smoothest path for the bus drivers and to pick up multiple students at one stop. Keeping the fewest stops per bus route reduces travel time.
