Cloverleaf Transportation Tips

Our #1 goal each day is to transport all student bus riders safely to and from school. In order to accomplish this goal, we need the cooperation of the students. Good student behavior while entering, riding, and leaving the bus contribute in many ways to safe transportation. Such conduct makes it possible for the driver to give full attention to the roadway and other drivers.

Bus riders need to be waiting 5 minutes at their bus stop before the bus arrives. We have 29 routes and transport nearly 1700 riders daily.  If the bus has to wait on a student, it delays the arrival of the bus at the next stop. While it may only be a minute, if it happens five to ten times, the bus is now five to ten minutes late toward the end of the route. The riders at the end of the route may have to wait outside longer and if the weather is poor, this greatly affects their experience.

In the evening when transporting our students home our drivers watch out especially for preschool thru 2nd grade, making sure someone is there for them.  If we have to wait, this extends the time we get the others home.  So if you have a little one, please make sure you’re out there when we pull up.
