Student Transportation Plans Questionnaire (2021-2022)

As I am sure many of you are already aware of the continuing bus driver shortage this year. We are asking parents to share students' transportation plans ahead of the school year in an effort to maximize our efficiency and reduce lateness. If you would like to help, please complete this short questionnaire regarding your student's transportation plans (one for each student in your family). Thank you in advance for your time and consideration, and we look forward to seeing you all on the first day of school, Wednesday, August 11th.

From the Director

Welcome! The Escambia County School District Transportation Department transports some 24,000 students over more than 260 school buses each and every school day.  It is one of the largest student transportation operations in the United States. The responsibility that guides that effort is immense, but our staff of 480 employees will not budge an inch without an abiding commitment to do it safely, dependably, and efficiently. That is our commitment to the students we transport and their parents, the public, and our schools.


Darlene Hart
Director of Transportation

Attention Parents!
Student Address Information

Please remember that unless your student's address information is current and accurate in the District's database, we cannot ensure he or she will be scheduled for transportation on the right bus to the right location. Please get to your child's school IMMEDIATELY after changing your address or contact information. That information not only improves the safety of the transportation evolution, it also helps ensure your child receives the appropriate student services and that the District can reach you in the event of an emergency. If you have any questions about this or about any other student transportation matter, please drop us a line.  For your convenience, we've provided web forms on our website that will be directed to a staff member who will quickly respond to your question or concern.
