Transportation DEPARTMENT OVERVIEW
The Pittsburg Unified School District’s Transportation Department’s primary objective is to transport our pupils to and from school in a safe and timely manner. We believe all pupils can behave appropriately and safely while waiting for, or riding on a school bus. Any pupil that disrupts the driver from the safe operation of their school bus may be denied transportation.
The Pittsburg Unified School District provides bus transportation as a privilege, not a right. This right is based on the School District's attendance boundaries set by our School Board and appropriate behavior in accordance with the California Education Code. Only students who are currently registered and attending district schools within their home school boundaries will be permitted to ride on district buses unless otherwise directed by the Superintendent/designee.
Students will be under the authority of, and directly responsible to the driver. The driver shall be responsible for the orderly conduct of all riders. These rules of conduct have been established in order to ensure the safety of riders, drivers, and equipment, and all students are required to comply with the rules at bus stops, loading zones, while riding buses to and/or from school, and during field trips. Any violation of the rules or refusal to obey the authority of the driver will be sufficient reason for denial of transportation.
