Transportation (School Bus Services)

Welcome to the Transportation Department 

The Transportation Department is charged with providing fee-based home-to-school transportation services for eligible students residing within Chico Unified School District boundaries. Transportation services may be provided via school District vehicles, contracted services, and/or volunteer services.

The safety of students and staff is a primary goal of the District, therefore, all school buses will comply with applicable laws, regulations and inspection requirements.  All school bus drivers will meet both state and school district standards to qualify as bus drivers.  Those students transported in a school bus will be under the authority of and responsible to the driver of the bus.  All students will conduct themselves in a cooperative manner.  Any student who does not conduct herself/himself appropriately will be subject to disciplinary action.  

The District operates transportation services as safely, efficiently and economically as possible.
 
 
Transportation Services Plan

Transportation Services Plan

The State Budget included additional funds available to school districts to help pay for more of the costs associated with providing student transportation services. In order to receive the funds, the District was required to adopt a Transportation Services Plan on or before April 1, 2024 after obtaining input from various educational partners.
 
The Transportation Services Plan was approved by the Board of Education on March 13, 2024.
 
Per Education Code (EC) Section 39800.1, as a condition of receiving apportionments for Transportation Services (under EC Section 41850.1), a local educational agency shall develop a plan describing the transportation services.
