BusesThe Triad Community Unit School District provides student transportation service to approx. 2,700 school students attending the seven school attendance centers. The Transportation Department is responsible for the daily operation for student transportation to and from school, scheduling of all field, athletic, and co-curriculum trips.

Eligibility for transportation service is governed by the Board of Education Policy on Transportation Eligibility.
Generally students are entitled to free transportation service if they reside 1.5 miles from the attendance area school or become eligible due to a state approved walking hazard zone.

Transportation safety is a shared responsibility and is enhanced with the active participation of students, parents, school staff, and our school bus drivers. School bus safety training is conducted with students and staff each year.

Students and parents in grades 6-12 can review the building transportation schedule through the PlusPortals system and grades Kdg-5th will receive information in the parent letter mailed a week prior to the beginning of school.  If you have any questions or would like to review other bus stop locations, please feel free to contact the Triad Transportation Department or school office.


The Transportation Department is open on school days during the regular school year from 06:30 AM until the last school bus clears its afternoon route sequence, generally 4:30 PM.
