School Buses - The Safest Way to get Kids to School
FACT: School buses are the safest mode of transportation for getting kids to and from school.Want to know more?
The Southwest Allen County School Corporation owns and operates its own fleet of school buses. Bus capacities range from 10 passengers to 84 passengers.
SACS is accepting applications for bus drivers. We offer a complete training program. Drivers who have achieved a Commercial Drivers License and meet all requirements start driving duties as substitute drivers with the opportunity to obtain a Sub-Contracted driving position.
The brochure Kids the School Bus and You from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration provides parents, children, and motorists helpful lifesaving tips to make traveling to and from the school bus stop and in school buses safer for everyone.
Students must be at their assigned stop location five (5) minutes before the scheduled pickup time. Stop locations may change periodically based on the student population and demographics and physical
conditions of the area served. Students must ride on their assigned bus, to their assigned stop. Students are not allowed to ride to (or from) another student’s home/ bus stop. Exceptions will only be made by the Director of Transportation. All requests must be made in writing ten (10) days prior to the start of
alternative transportation. Emergencies will be considered and approved by the Director of Transportation.
School bus schedules are available at all schools during school registration. All students who used transportation services at the end of the previous school year should have received a transportation verification letter by mail in June with their bus number, stop location and stop times for the next school
