Transportation services provided by the district are that which are required by law, including elementary and middle school students residing over 4 miles from the school in their attendance area. Also students who have been moved for the benefit of the district in instances of over crowding, major facility renovation, or efficiency in use of school buildings. Transportation is also provided to special education students that have transportation identified as part of their individual education program.
The role of the LPS transportation department is to provide safe and timely student transportation to and from assigned schools and activities in accordance to district policy.
When the sign says ‘Stop,’ that means stop. Sounds simple enough, right? But in the case of a stop sign attached to a school bus, drivers aren’t always paying attention.
Ryan Robley, director of operations for Lincoln Public Schools, says that LPS school bus drivers this school year have cited increased cases of drivers who are ignoring the stop sign on school buses. Nationally, 13 million drivers ignore this simple law.
LPS has created a video to show on cable channel 21, the LPS website, social media sites and other places, stressing the importance of student safety in or near school buses.
The Lincoln Public Schools is continuously accepting applications for school bus drivers and transportation paraeducators. Regular routes and substitute positions available.Learn More and Apply Today!
