The Transportation Department transports an
estimated 1,800 students per day on 17 buses to 3 schools. Our work force
is made up of 19 drivers, 3 aides, 2 mechanics, an assistant supervisor and a
supervisor. This department maintains and services the buses, 13 other
vehicles and the large mowers that are used at all the schools. They
travel an estimated 300,000 miles per year in all kinds of weather while doing
their best to ensure the children’s safety as their first concern.
The first routes leave at 6:00 am and the last
routes get back to the Transportation garage at 6:00 pm, excluding field
trips. They travel all kinds of roads, from 8 foot country roads to
highways. In most cases, they are the first Trotwood-Madison employee the
students see each day and the last.
They also provide transportation to over 450
extra curricular events and field trips per year for a total of 50,000 miles
