Transportation Department

It is the goal of the Tulare City School District to provide safe and professional transportation for your children. Documented to be one of the safest forms of transportation is traveling to school by bus. Our dedicated mechanics work hard to keep all our buses in great condition. In fact, the district scores consistently high on the California Highway Patrol safety inspections. Our bus drivers focus on making positive, appropriate connections with students. Please take a minute to review our bus rules and seat belt law requirements located in the sidebar of this page, and discuss their importance with your child. We have also included more important information in the sidebar of this page regarding foggy day information and transportation safety guidelines. We appreciate your support!
