Our mission is to get your student transported safely to and from school. We also transport Special Needs students to their specialty schools; athletes to and from events; and students on field trips. Transportation plays a vital role in the event of an emergency.

  • Identification is required to ride SUSD buses
  • Please be at the bus stop ready to ride at least 5-10 minutes prior to posted time.  Our posted times are our best estimated time. Many variables can affect the time.
  • Ensure that students ride only the bus route they are assigned
  • Kindergartners may not be discharged from their assigned bus unless a parent/responsible party meets the student at the bus stop.
  • Call the Dispatch Office when there is a special circumstance that affects your student's bus ridership.
  • We assume no responsibility for lost items. Every effort is made to return lost items to their rightful owner.
