About Transportation Services

  • School buses

    Your child is entitled to bus transportation at no charge if you are a resident of School District 15 and live 1.5 miles or more from the District-assigned school he or she will attend, or who live in an area declared to be hazardous as determined by the Illinois Department of Transportation. The Board of Education makes transportation available to other areas on a paid basis and accepts riders to the extent that transportation services are available and are approved on a case-by-case basis by transportation. No stops will be made less than one-half mile from the school building.

    All bus assignments, as well as routes and stops, are determined by Transportation Services. Parents whose children ride school buses are asked to be sure the information on the bus assignment is accurate. If the information is not correct, please call the school office.

    The staff members of School District 15’s Transportation Department are the first and last people children see every school day. We want that meeting to be positive.

    District 15 operates its own bus fleet, which is one of the largest district-owned bus fleets in Illinois. A total of 162 buses safely transport 10,500 parochial and public school children each day.

    Approximately 1.5 million miles are logged annually on district buses. To maintain the highest safety levels possible approximately 250 tires are replaced on district buses and two state inspections are performed on each bus every year. The district uses approximately 220,000 gallons of fuel yearly.
