The Elk Grove Unified School District Transportation Department provides home-to-school transportation to traditional, year-round and special education students who reside within the board-approved busing guidelines, as well as transportation for field trips.
Bus transportation plays a significant role in saving lives, reducing traffic and improving air quality. The district operates one of the cleanest fleets in California. Our bus drivers help us achieve reduced emissions and are the first people many of our students engage with at the start of their school day and we need more drivers.

Foggy Day / Inclement Weather Policy
Foggy or inclement weather may result in service delays or cancellations. By law, school buses are prohibited from traveling when there is less than 200 feet of visibility in each direction. Parents are advised to listen to or watch local television and radio stations for weather updates and service delays. You may also call our weather hotline at (916) 686-7733 and select #3 or check this website for updates. Students should not stand at the bus stop longer than 30 minutes beyond the usual bus arrival time. Remember, while the sun may have broken through in your area, your bus may still be experiencing delays.
Calculating Time Student Will Be Home on a Minimum Day
Example school is normally out at 3:00 pm and my student gets home at 3:45 pm so the ride is 45 minutes. If the school gets out at 1:00 pm today add the 45 minutes and they should be home at around 1:45 p.m.
