Welcome to the Parkland School District Transportation Department!
Our mission is to provide safe transportation for all students of the Parkland School District.
Daily, the Parkland School District:
- Transports over 10,000 students in the morning and afternoon
- From within the 72 square miles of the District
- On approximately 180 schools buses and school vehicles
- Transports to 11 PSD schools and over 40 non-public schools and or special needs programs
Yearly, Parkland School District vehicles travel 1.7 million miles.
Additionally every quarter (3 months) 25% of all the drivers employed by Parkland are selected at random for a drug and alcohol test. This test is conducted without warning by federally licensed laboratories and the drivers are selected at random by a computer program. Any driver who tests positive for a controlled substance fails the test and loses their school bus endorsement and is terminated. Any driver who tests 0.02 for alcohol (which is 4 times tougher than the level for the general public) also loses their school bus endorsement. Failure to take the test at the time notified is considered a failed test and the driver loses their school bus endorsement.
All school buses are inspected annually every summer by the Pennsylvania State Police. Parkland School District bus and vehicle maintenance exceeds state minimum requirements.
