2019-2020 Bus Routes. These routes are updated every day as new students are added and withdrawn and new alternate pickup and drop off sites are turned in. These times are subject to change as those changes are made. The drivers will contact you before school starts.

This site will identify the school bus route, stop location, and stop time assigned to a residential address for the 2019-20 school year. Households with students who utilize special needs transportation will be contacted directly by phone or letter with their student's specific transportation information. For the safety of our students, no personal student information is available through this website.

Instructions for navigating this site:

Enter your house number and street address (no zip code needed)
Do NOT enter apartment numbers or units
Click on the Search button
Click your street address / zip code from the list of Address Matches

Please ensure your child is at the bus stop at least five (5) minutes before the scheduled time to ensure they are there when the bus arrives. Pick-up and drop-off times may need to be adjusted during the beginning weeks of school and will become more consistent for the remainder of the year.

We hope that you find this site helpful. If you cannot find your student's information make sure you fill out a transportation request form.

Your Driver…

…is a trained professional who is dedicated to providing safe pupil transportation. Driving a school bus is a demanding job. The challenges presented by maneuvering a 30,000 pound vehicle on narrow country roads in all kinds of weather while, at the same time, effectively supervising 50-60 “active” students requires a patient, highly skilled person behind the wheel who is willing to assume a tremendous amount of responsibility for the precious cargo they transport.

Driver applicants are thoroughly evaluated before hire. After a successful interview, they must complete a medical examination, criminal background checks, drug screening and a driving record check. Initial training consists of 15 hours of classroom instruction followed by 20-30 hours of on-the-road training with a certified On Board Instructor (OBI). State evaluators administer the test for the Commercial Driver’s License. Once licensed and certified, drivers are required to complete annual in-service training, an annual physical, have their driving record reviewed quarterly and are subject to random drug testing, as per federal law. Every six years, a driver must complete certification renewal training by attending nine hours of classroom instruction and accomplishing a driving evaluation.

Remember…safely transporting your kids is serious business. Our drivers are trained and equipped to get the job done right…every day!
