School Bus

Transportation Update

  • Due to continued staffing shortages, families can expect intermittent delays in student transportation for the remainder of the school year. Daily messages will no longer be disseminated. If your child’s(ren’s) school(s) will be significantly impacted, you will receive a Blackboard message from your child’s(ren’s) school(s). We recognize and understand that the shortage of bus drivers may have caused an inconvenience to our families, and we are continuing to work diligently to resolve it. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

  • Norfolk Public Schools operates a fleet of 320 buses with 120 contract drivers. We transport approximately 8,000 students to/from school and travel more than 1.4 million miles annually. We provide bus service to general education and special needs students, as well as for school activities, athletic, activity and SOL remedial classes.

    Our staff members are dedicated to the fulfillment of the NPS mission. We have 19 fleet maintenance employees who service and maintain our fleet in tip-top condition. Our technicians are ASE certified and receive ongoing staff development on proper procedures dealing with school bus maintenance.

    Additionally, we have a strong professional staff in our office who provide quality customer service.
