Contract Buses


Bus Schedule and Eligible Riders: The bus schedule provides for school hours as follows: 9:20 a.m. - 3:20 p.m. for the elementary schools; 8:20 a.m. - 2:50 p.m. for the middle schools; and 8:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. for the high schools. This time schedule utilizes the school buses most efficiently by assigning each bus driver a maximum number of morning and afternoon trips.

Gasoline Usage: The school district allocates the gasoline used by the bus company for the in-district transportation. The allowance given to the contractor is based on the total allowable route mileage for the school year at a consumption rate of 5.6 miles per gallon. A State contract is used for the best competitive price. In other instances where transportation to the out-of-district private, parochial and special schools is required, bus contractors must purchase their own gasoline.
