Transportation

The first and last school official most of our students see each day is their bus driver. Our Transportation Department strives to make this a positive experience for students and parents. The information provided has been developed as a guide so that all stakeholders understand the policies, procedures, rules and regulations.

The Lafayette Parish School Transportation Department takes the responsibility of safely transporting students very seriously. As you become familiar with the content on this site you will see that the emphasis throughout is on safety. We thank you for allowing us to serve you and your children by transporting them safely.

In order to accomplish our goals we have purchased a new software that tracks complaints, implemented a new routing software, and set up a Web Query that allows the public to access bus stop information by simply logging on to our website and typing in their address. We are working diligently to improve our department to better serve you.

If you have any comments or suggestions please send them to:

We welcome and appreciate all parental participation and suggestions relevant to making our department the best in the nation.
