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 59 school buses and 18 vans, used to transport nearly 4,500 students to 50 school locations in Chester, Delaware, and New Castle Counties. Additionally, our department transports over 1,500 sports, band and field trips each school year. We have a workforce of 65 bus drivers and 2 bus aides, and our district-owned fleet of buses is maintained by 3 garage 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.
