Transportation

Our Transportation Department places a top priority on the safety of every student in our district. We support all district transportation needs, such as busing students to and from school each day, providing special needs transportation, accommodating all extracurricular and activity trip busing needs, and providing vehicles for employees to attend workshops and conferences. 

Our school bus drivers possess a Commercial Driver’s License and pass the state bus driver certification. We’re proud of our safety record and the years of service it has provided the district.

Bus Rules

Your child may receive bus transportation at no charge if you are a resident of Bellwood School District #88 and live more than a mile-and-a-half from school. Students who live in “hazardous” areas may also qualify. We enforce bus rules to make travel to and from school as safe as possible. Please be aware that we monitor video and audio on all Bellwood buses to ensure our drivers and students abide by these rules.

  2. Noise should be at a level acceptable to both the driver and/or coaches.
