Our Mission

Our core mission is to transport our children to and from their centers of learning in a safe, timely, efficient and academically supportive manner. We are the first step in our children’s educational journey. St. Lucie School Transportation ranks 15th in Florida in the number of children transported and 12th in the number of miles run each year. We run the 75th largest fleet in the nation. We serve the district from two terminals, North County Compound (NCC) and South County Compound (SCC). Each terminal has supervisory staff and dispatchers covering each shift and routing personnel to serve parents and students. All buses are equipped with two way radios and are monitored by on board cameras and satellite tracking devices. Bus routing is accomplished through a computer database with a map based road network designed to optimize bus efficiency. Bus stops are located to be in the safest, most central position for all eligible riders. All stops are located according to state and district guidelines with safety, timeliness and efficiency in mind.

According to the last National Safety Council findings, Yellow School buses are:


times safer than your family automobile


times safer than flying


times safer than a passenger train


times safer than transit or intercity buses

Yellow school bus transportation is the safest, most economical and friendly method of transporting Florida’s school children. Every day Florida parents send almost a million of their children to a local school bus stop… with peace of mind.

School bus drivers are required by law to receive more training than any other driver in the State. A School bus driver receives training in student management and first aid. A school bus driver’s background is checked by the Department of Justice and/or the FBI prior to receiving a license to drive a school bus.

School bus stops are strictly regulated by laws. Procedures to load and unload the students are also regulated by laws.

School bus drivers are regulated by hundreds of additional laws governing the operation and maintenance of a school bus. School Bus drivers receive so much original and continual training, that a school bus driver can legally drive any bus on the roadways.

The accident and injury rate of yellow school buses in the United States makes the Yellow School Bus the safest ride in America!
