A staff of experienced mechanics perform constant upkeep as well as preventive maintenance for the fleet vehicles. The drivers are responsible for daily inspection and cleanliness of the vehicles.
SCHEDULING AND ROUTING
Because our community is dynamic, the routes, stops and the bus loads may change weekly. Routes and times may be accessed on the UCSD #1 website, you may call the Transportation Department at 789-6216 for information concerning your child's bus number, location of stop, and time of stop.
SPECIAL TRANSPORTATION REQUESTS
Transportation requests for students with special needs will be made through the District's Special Education Department before a bus can be scheduled.
ADVERSE WEATHER CONDITIONS
During extreme blizzard conditions, children will be taken to a safe “haven” or location. Drivers have been instructed not to leave small children at bus stops where they may be in danger. The drivers have been instructed to radio the Transportation office so that they can make every effort to locate a parent or guardian before taking the child back to his or her school.
Buses will not be crossing flooded areas, closed roads or roads blocked by snow. Parents will be notified and arrangements will be made for their pick-up and delivery.
