Important Reminders about Student Conduct and Safety on the Bus

Parents and guardians, we have experienced an increase in behavior concerns on APS school buses since the start of the school year. To get students to and from school safely, it is critical that students follow the bus rules. We are asking our students and families to help us reduce safety issues by following APS behavior expectations for student bus riders.


School Buses are the safest mode of transportationOUR MISSION

"Transport Aurora Public Schools (APS) students safely, efficiently, professionally and effectively to and from school and school sponsored events in order to enable APS faculty and staff to accelerate learning every day."

We employee over 200 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 road

We 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!
