Our first pick up is approximately 6:30 in the morning and our last drop off is approximately 4:50 in the afternoon. With an average of 40 students per bus, we transport about 4,000 students daily. We provide bus service to general education and special needs students as well as extra-curricular school activities.

🗺️We operate 24 High School routes, 39 Middle School routes, 49 Elementary routes, and 12 Special Needs routes. Forty-nine of our routes are double runs - with a secondary (middle/high) and then an elementary school run made by the same bus.

🚍Our staff members include a director, a fleet manager, an administrative assistant, two driver dispatchers, an inventory specialist, and a transportation secretary. All are dedicated to the safety of our children. In addition to contract and substitute drivers, we have six fleet maintenance employees who service and maintain our fleet in tip-top condition. Our technicians are ASE certified and receive ongoing staff development on proper procedures dealing with school bus maintenance.
