APS Transportation Department


The APS Transportation Department provides safe and efficient transportation to the students of Aurora Public Schools.

School Buses are the safest mode of transportationOUR MISSION

We transport students to and from school, to special instructional programs through-out the Denver area and to athletic events through-out Colorado.  We employee over 160 team members in our department and service over 500 vehicles and small engines to meet all of the support functions and operational needs of the school district.


School buses keep 13.7 million cars off the roadWe support our district's mission by providing access to our learning environments and ensure that all students are given equitable opportunities for academic success.  Our expectation is that each student supports a culture based on trust, compassion, mutual respect and integrity while learning the life skill of how to be a safe rider on public transportation.  Our passenger's safety is our top priority!
