Welcome to the Transportation Department

Our Vision: The goal of the Rome City School District's transportation department is to provide safe and reliable transportation for all students eligible to attend our schools. Our bus drivers and monitors are trained and certified in public transportation services, as well as prepared for any scenario that may happen. We are constantly looking to improve our services and staff, and take steps each and every day to do so, so that in the end your child receives the best worry-free transportation services possible.

The transportation operation at the Rome City School District coordinates the transportation for more than 5,500 students daily within the district's nearly 100 square miles.  This includes more than 114 regular-education student trips, twice a day, to and from the school district's six elementary schools, an upper elementary school, a middle school and the high school.  In addition, the transportation operation also serves the district's special needs students, parochial school students, English as a second language (ESL) students, daily student shuttles and various before-school and after-school programs.

The district applies a "double trip" procedure to many bus routes, such as transporting high school students to Rome Free Academy and then sending the same bus to transport elementary students to their respective schools.  This plan makes the most use of our school buses and the staggered starting times for different grade levels and buildings. 

The total transportation staff includes both bus drivers and bus monitors employed by the Rome City School District as well as First Student.
