Our Mission

The Transportation Team is dedicated to supporting the District’s mission by safely and efficiently transporting the students of Boone County Schools to over 25 locations while also supporting field trips, sporting events, extracurricular activities, vocational programs, and early college programs. We hire and self train highly-qualified employees and provide constant training and tools to ensure the overall safety of the District.

 

Our Vision

Our Vision is to support the education process by transporting students safely, securely, reliably and in a timely manner to and from school and school events. Our goal is to operate safe, dependable and cost-effective transportation services for our students. We want the student’s ride to be part of a positive educational experience.
