We know you can have a lot of questions regarding transportation services for the Glenwood Community School District. We have compiled a few of the most frequently asked questions here.

According to extensive studies done by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the current construction standard of bus seating known as compartmentalization provides a very strong safety barrier for bus passengers.

The principle is similar to an egg carton – specifically designed to transport something fragile as safely as possible.

Absolutely. Please refer to the Rules and Regulations of transportation services.

Contact the Transportation Office at 527-4116, between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 5:00 pm. 

Contact the Transportation Office to discuss the problem. Communication between this office and home are very important. If the issue cannot be resolved during a telephone conversation, we will gladly arrange a meeting between parents, bus rider(s), Transportation Supervisors and the bus driver.

Parents and children are always welcome to come the “Bus Barn” to meet the drivers and staff at any time. A visit to the Transportation Office and a tour on the bus can help calm any anxiety new riders have.

Please view our job openings page here or the district's careers page for more information on becoming a bus driver.
