The Transportation Department is responsible for transporting nearly 27,000 children each day to 57 school buildings and programs serving 11 communities encompassing three counties, logging about 4.5 million miles a year. It takes 283 bus routes to ensure that all U-46 students arrive to school safely and on time each day. Tiered morning start times have improved efficiency and reduced costs. The District owns 351 buses and ranks, in terms of size, in the top five percent of pupil transportation programs in the United States. Numbers aside, we understand that we are transporting the world's most precious cargo. The safety and security of your child is our priority.
