Transportation Buslink Website

The Transportation Department is excited to unveil a new on-line service that will allow you to access your child’s bus stop location and time using a secure web site that only you can access. In doing so, we will eliminate the postcards that are typically mailed home. Postcards must be mailed several days in advance to insure they reach the home prior to the start of school. Therefore late changes to routes including changes in address, enrollment, custody, before/after school care and other family driven modifications result in outdated information before postcards even reach home.

AN IMPORTANT REMINDER ABOUT SCHOOL BUS TRAFFIC LAWS

AN IMPORTANT REMINDER ABOUT SCHOOL BUS TRAFFIC LAWS

Ever wonder what you should do when approaching a school bus that is stopped on the roadway? The answer is not only simple it is also written into law (O.R.C. 4511.75). Here is what the law says: • If a bus is stopped on a street or road which has fewer than 4 lanes, all traffic proceeding in either direction must stop. • If a bus is stopped on a street or road which has 4 or more lanes, only traffic proceeding in the same direction as the bus must stop. • You must not proceed until the school bus resumes motion, or until signaled by the school bus driver to proceed. If you fail to stop for a school bus, your error will not go unnoticed. Bus drivers will report to a law enforcement agency, the license plate number of any vehicle that fails to comply with the law. An investigation will be conducted to identify the driver for enforcement purposes. Penalties for not obeying these rules could cost you to up to $500 and a maximum 1 year suspension of your driver license, (ORC 4511.75) Read More
