    Our Mission:  "To provide safe and reliable transportation services to our students and promote a positive image of the Springfield City School District."

    We transport approximately 1,600 students on a daily basis driving a total of 289,428 miles per year.

    Our office is open between the hours of 5:30 am to 5:00 pm.  The office number is 505-2850.

     Transportation Eligibility

    1. All students in Kindergarten through 8th grade, who live 2 miles or more from their residential school, qualify for busing to and from their school. Springfield City School District Board of Education has approved transporting of high school students who are 2 miles or more from SHS.
    2. Any student with a medical condition/s that would make it necessary for Springfield City School District to provide transportation must have a 504 Plan written for them. Please contact your student's school for the 504 Plan. The school will then notify the Transportation Department of the type of busing that would be best for that student.

    Bus Pass

    If your child qualifies for transportation, the school contacts the transportation department to arrange for a bus pass. Before school starts bus passes are mailed to the student's parent/guardian. After the beginning of the school year, bus passes are given to the bus driver. Parents and students must sign the bus pass and return the original to the bus driver. The bus pass is kept on file in the Transportation Office. If in the a.m. you feel your child's bus did not show up or in the p.m. you feel your child should be already at their bus stop please call 505-2850 for information.

    Discipline

    Expectations of students regarding school bus safety are laid out on the bus pass. If a student does not follow the rules, the bus driver will give a verbal warning. After the driver has given repeated verbal warnings, the driver will do a write up. Bus write ups are turned in to the student's home school and discipline is given by the school administrator. See the bus pass file below.

    Change in Residence

    If there is a change in residence, the parent/guardian must contact Springfield High School if student is 9-12 or the Attendance Department if K-8. Busing changes will be made as soon as Springfield High School or the Attendance Department notifies us. Please give as much advance notice as possible. New busing information is given to the student's home school. If you are curious to see if your child is eligible, please feel free to call 505-2850.
