The Transportation Department provides home to school transportation for more than 1200 students each school day. Twenty-nine school bus drivers drive about 318,000 miles each year to ensure District students get to and from school safely. Carrying students on school busses is the safest method of transportation. Additionally, bus service reduces congestion within the city and at the schools. It also reduces overall exhaust emissions by reducing the number of vehicles taking students to and from school.

Several students have special needs that make it difficult for them to get to school. For these students, the District provides bussing options that accommodate those needs. Many of these students must be picked up at their home rather than meeting the bus at a traditional bus stop.

In addition to home to school transportation, this group provides activity busses and sports busses for a variety of athletic events and education enrichment programs.
