Transportation Program Information

Calvert County Public Schools’ transportation services are available to every student enrolled in the school system. The Department of Transportation strives to provide economical and efficient transportation for all students which is safe, both physically and emotionally.

Transportation designs, monitors and revises over 150 daily school bus routes while also scheduling hundreds of co- and extra-curricular bus trips for instructional supervisors.

Transportation trains and evaluates all school bus drivers and bus assistants, while also monitoring the validity of Commercial Driver’s Licenses, Medical Examinations, driving records and criminal background checks.

Transportation uses technology to enhance safety and security by providing:

  1. Two-way radios so bus drivers can communicate with our office and;
  2. Audio-visual recording systems on the buses to assist with the investigation of concerns.

Additionally, Transportation oversees inspections of all buses multiple times throughout the year to ensure compliance with all Motor Vehicle Administration and Code of Maryland safety standards.
