Studies done by The National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) reveal that the school bus is the safest vehicle on the road. The Unionville-Chadds Ford School District transportation department proudly owns and maintains a fleet of 54 school buses and 17 vans, used to transport nearly 4,300 students to 70 school programs in Chester, Delaware, and New Castle Counties. Additionally, our department provides transportation for hundreds of sports, band and field trips each school year. When fully staffed, we have a workforce of 55 bus drivers, 4 office staff, and our district-owned fleet of buses is maintained by 3 skilled mechanics.
Bus schedules are designed by the transportation office during the summer. As student ridership changes throughout the school year, bus schedules are modified and adjusted in order to maintain an efficient transportation system, intended to accommodate the vast needs of our students.
