Please refer to our Yellow Bus Transportation Page for news and updates on the Student Transportation Services including:

  • The activation of the My School Bus Monitor Service
  • How to request new service
  • Making inquiries about Yellow Bus Services 
  • Joint Transportation Policy

Except for emergencies, parents are asked to NOT call Sparksman Transportation to ask for changes in routes or stop. This will improve the flow of information and allow staff to focus on busing operations and the updating of bus routes. Please use the Yellow Bus Transportation Request and Inquiry Form

Do expect some delays in the bus routes for the first few weeks of the year. Loading passengers at each stop and at the school takes more time at the start of the year with new riders every day and drivers needing to become familiar with their new routes. By mid-September, routes and schedules will be updated to reflect the actual ridership and time needed for the bus to complete their routes.

Again we appreciate your patience and understanding in these first few weeks of the school year.
