The Department of Transportation looks forward to working with parents and students to ensure safe ridership to and from our schools. Parents with questions regarding routing, schedules, or bus stops should call the student's assigned school, the Transportation Department's customer service department, or the Transportation Supervisor assigned to the student's school.
The school bus is an important part of your student's day, and the bus driver is a vital link between home and school. GCPS bus drivers are required to have a Commercial Driver's License and undergo a comprehensive training program of driving skills, student management, classroom schooling, CPR and First Aid. All bus drivers are required to participate in monthly in-service meetings, attend a safety workshop each year, and pass our Annual Driver Proficiency Test (ADPT). Our bus drivers are well trained and dedicated professionals whose primary responsibility is to transport students safely.
National Recognition: The Pupil Transportation Safety Institute (PTSI) deemed
GCPS' Transportation Department one of the five best in the country.
