Our school bus operators are the first contact many students have with school each morning and the last contact they have each afternoon.
Our goal is to make that experience a safe, positive and caring one for all students.
Our school bus operators come from a variety of backgrounds and education levels. From stay at home parents and retired NASA engineers, to college students and realtors. Regardless of where they came from or how they got here, they have one thing in common; the safety of students, both physical and emotional, is always at the forefront of their daily interactions.
Every day, our skilled drivers welcome hundreds of students providing safe and economical transportation to and from school, co-curricular and extra-curricular events.
Bend-La Pine Schools operates transportation services for elementary students who live more than 1 mile from their schools and for secondary students who live more than 1.5 miles from their schools, as required by state law.
