About the Department of Transportation
School buses have proven to be the safest form of transportation in the nation. In Aiken County, we transport approximately 10,400 students to and from school each day on school buses. During the 2014-2015 school year, our buses collectively completed 2,802,981 miles-- that's 15,572 miles per day!
Coordination and Maintenance of Buses
Although our school buses are funded and owned by the state of South Carolina, we coordinate and manage routing of buses and oversee the performance of the bus drivers locally. Buses are routed according to state law and regulation. Maintenance and servicing of the buses is handles by the State Department of Education, Office of Transportation - Aiken/Johnston Bus Shop.
Student bus-related discipline issues are handled by the school administration. Concerns regarding student bus discipline may be directed to an assistant principal or an area transportation supervisor. Additional information regarding bus discipline may be received by referencing the transportation section of the District's Code of Student Conduct Handbook
During the 2014 - 2015 school year, we employed 220 drivers an monitors on a regular basis. We take great pride in training our bus drivers to be safety-conscious and dependable. Interested individuals desiring to become a certified bus driver may obtain employment information by calling the Districtís Transportation Office at 593-7123
