ABOUT US

The Transportation Department provides the community a safe, professional and efficient means to transport eligible students in the Dayton area.

We provide transportation for students to and from school, athletic events and field trips. Transportation is also provided for special events as assigned by the district superintendent. Our school bus fleet travels over 8,000 miles per day and over 1.5 million miles a school year! The transportation department employs more than 300 employees, including nearly 200 qualified school bus drivers and substitutes. Additionally, there are highly qualified mechanics who maintain our fleet, body shop/metal workers who make needed repairs to school buses and trained paraprofessionals that ride and assist our special needs students.

The Dayton Public Schools Transportation Department has received the highest marks for safety and reliability from the annual Ohio State Highway Patrol inspection team. We strive to provide safe and reliable transportation for our students by effectively managing time, resources and personnel.
