Transportation Information
If your child(ren) does not require bus transportation for the 2023-24 school year, please OPT-OUT here.

NOTE: If your student does not ride the bus due to sports, etc. and has not ridden for 3 weeks consistently, they will be removed from the route. We do this so that the times listed for riders will be correct. Every student that is added or removed makes a difference in pick up and drop off times. 

Once your student needs to be added to the route again, all it takes is a quick email to [email protected]. Thank you!

Drive for Licking Heights
Our drivers are trained professionals who are dedicated to providing safe transportation for our students. Each day, our drivers are safely transporting our future!

Driving a school bus is a worthwhile, yet demanding job. Our drivers maneuver a 30,000-pound vehicle on narrow country roads lined with cars in all kinds of weather conditions. While driving, our drivers supervise 50 to 60 students. This requires a patient and highly-skilled person. This position comes with tremendous responsibility.  

Driver applicants are thoroughly evaluated before they are hired. Drivers must complete and pass the following:
  • Medical physical
  • Background check
  • Drug screen
  • Driving record check
They also attend 15 hours of classroom instruction and approximately 20-30 hours of on-the-bus training. After successful training by an experienced on-board instructor, they must be tested by state administration in order to obtain a commercial driver’s license.  

Licking Heights drivers complete annual physicals and random drug screens as well. Every six years, bus drivers must recertify, which means additional classroom instruction and a driver’s evaluation by an on-board instructor.  

Our drivers are trained and ready to roll each year! If you would like to join our team, reach out to us at 740-927-3340.
