Transportation 15-16

The Transportation Department at RSU 21 is committed to the safe and reliable transportation of all of the students in our district. Our staff is comprised of 40 school bus drivers, 13 Bus Aides, 1 Head Bus Driver, 2 Mechanics and 1 Director.
Each morning and afternoon our drivers perform a pre-trip inspections on their assigned vehicles ensuring that they are safe and free of defects before they leave on their routes. Last year our fleet of school buses and vans logged over 580,000 miles transporting students to-and-from school, on field trips and athletic trips.

All of our buses are equipped with GPS systems to track the location and speed of our vehicles. They are also equipped with interior security cameras with audio to monitor occupant behavior. As of July 2015, all of our daily route buses are equipped with exterior cameras mounted by the stop arm to record motorists who illegally pass our buses when they are stopped loading or unloading students with their red lights flashing. The pictures and video can be copied by the Transportation Department and sent to our local law enforcement agencies to use to track down the offenders. Also, all of our new buses that we purchase now are equipped with Rapid-Flash LED Warning Lights. These features are added safety measures we are taking to ensure safe student transportation across our district.

We look forward to another great school year transporting the students of RSU 21. If at any time you have any questions, comments or concerns please feel free to e-mail or call us at the Transportation Department.
