Transportation Services

School Transportation

Bus transportation is provided for students who live 1.5 miles or further from their assigned schools. The school system operates one of the state's largest bus fleets, consisting of 153 buses transporting 13,500 students to and from school, approximately 1 million miles per year.  Bus drivers must hold commercial drivers' licenses and pass pre-employment and random drug tests. Buses are inspected each year before school starts by the Georgia State Patrol. The safety of our students is our priority in the Dougherty County School System. Citizens are encouraged to notify the Transportation Department with any concern about school bus transportation.

Students and parents new to the system should call the Transportation Department (431-1265) for their bus schedule.

Riding a bus is considered a privilege and not a right. Students who wish to enjoy this privilege must follow certain rules and regulations in order to help ensure safe and orderly bus transportation. Discipline will be strictly enforced. To ensure bus safety and to help control behavior problems, the Dougherty County Schools Transportation Department uses monitoring video cameras and recorders.
