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 58 school buses and 20 vans, used to transport over 4,500 students to 65 school locations. Additionally, our department transports over 1,500 sports, band and field trips each school year. When fully staffed, the department employs 70 bus drivers. Our district owned fleet of buses is maintained by three skilled diesel 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.
