The Okaloosa County School District Transportation Department has offices in the north, central and south parts of the county to better serve our students and our schools. Our main objective is to transport students to and from school in a safe and timely manner every day. We have a fleet of 240 buses that transport over 17,000 students daily, covering three million miles in a single school year!
Besides transporting students, the Transportation Department also:
- Provides transportation for extra-curricular activities;
- Educates elementary students in bus safety;
- Trains prospective drivers in commercial driver training programs;
- Processes vehicle tags and registration for all schools and departments;
- Issues vehicle numbers.
School Bus Safety
School buses provide the safest form of transportation in the United States. Nationwide each school year, approximately 470,000 school buses travel 4.3 billion miles transporting 25 million students to and from school and school related activities. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) statistics show that the fatality rate for school buses is 0.2 fatalities per 100 million vehicle miles traveled as compared to 1.5 fatalities per 100 million vehicle miles for cars. School bus travel is approximately 8 times safer than travel in other types of vehicles. This unparalleled safety record is largely the result of the manner in which school buses are constructed.
Buckle up for safety!
