Transportation Services

A line of Bucks IU school student minivans

At the request of our Bucks County School Districts, the Bucks IU provides specialized services to transport students from their home to district classroom locations, Bucks IU programs, and approved private schools. Our services primarily focus on the unique transportation requirements of students with special needs, ranging in age from 3 to 21, with consideration of each child’s special needs at the forefront of the services we provide.

We operate our own fleet of vehicles and contract with outside transportation agencies, mainly for students who require lift vehicles and whose disabilities require an aide to travel with them on the vehicle. These aides help manage students who may be medically fragile or demonstrate behavioral issues that would best be addressed by having someone ride with them (our drivers and aides are trained in the characteristics of various disabilities). All the vehicles we use are air conditioned, have a seatbelt for each student, and are equipped to handle safety vests, seatbelt locks, Kid-Y vests, car seats, and other adaptive equipment.

Additionally, we work with our county school districts to consolidate and coordinate routes between them that our smaller vans can handle more cost effectively. We also transport students involved in work placements (job coached training situations) and the Extended School Year (ESY) program during the summer.

Parents and guardians seeking transportation services for their child must contact their school district.
