Student Transportation

The Office of Student Transportation is responsible for developing regulations and procedures for safe and efficient student transportation services. The office monitors, analyzes and evaluates local districts’ transportation systems, keeping records in order to increase the safety, cost-effectiveness and accountability of transportation operations. In addition, the office performs a fiscal function by collecting and validating various data necessary to calculate state aid for student transportation, and conducts studies to identify operational trends and efficiencies. Finally, the office develops training programs, provides guidance and oversight in the consolidation of public and nonpublic school transportation services among districts and other agencies, and oversees the administration of transportation contracts.
