TRANSPORTATION OVERVIEW

The goal of support services is to provide safe, efficient and appropriate public transportation services for all eligible students. 
 
Indian Prairie student transportation is administered to provide best practices for safe and efficient services in the most economical manner. The Department of Support Services is responsible for supervising, administering, investigating, and resolving issues with the District’s transportation company.   The District partners with First Student to implement the student transportation and will work together with them to address all concerns.
 
The District will provide free transportation to and from school for resident students who live (1) A distance of 1.5 miles or more from their assigned schools, or (2) within 1.5 miles of their assigned schools, but for whom walking would constitute a serious hazard due to the vehicular traffic or rail crossings, as determined in accordance with the standards established by the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), and for whom adequate public transportation is not available.
 
Vehicles used by the District or any transportation contractor will meet all federal and state safety standards. Drivers will meet all required federal and state standards for licensing.
 
Bus schedules and routes are determined by the Office of Support Services in concert with First Student, the District’s transportation company, and will be altered only with the approval and direction of the Office of Support Services. Safety hazards and population density will determine the number and placement of bus stops in a given area. To the extent possible, school bus routes will be restricted to main routes and state- and county-maintained roads. 

 

The Department of Support Services and First Student reserve the right to make changes to this information as we meet the changing needs of our student population. Please check this site regularly for the updates or contact support services via this website.
