The Transportation Department transports an estimated 2.868 students per day on 34 buses to 6 schools. Our workforce is made up of 27 drivers, 8 aides, 2 mechanics, 3 van drivers 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 6:30 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 extracurricular events and field trips per year for a total of 50,000 miles.
