Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to the J.O. Combs Unified School District Transportation Department! It is our commitment to provide safe and efficient transportation for all of our bus riders. The transportation department is proud to support the district's transportation needs for all daily routes to and from school as well as for educational field trips and athletic contests.
Our fleet consists of 46 buses, 3 activity busses, 9 fleet vehicles, and 8 utility maintenance vehicles. This fleet is serviced and maintained in our district by our team of two mechanics who take great pride in their flawless DPS record keeping all of our vehicles up to the highest standard of excellence.
The safety of our riders is our top priority. Our training program requirements surpass the Arizona minimum standards to include quarterly and monthly student transportation training, and annual refresher instruction from the Department of Public Safety and Motor Vehicle Division. All of our drivers hold an Arizona Commercial Driver License and State Bus Driver Certificate; they must pass the Physical Performance Test annually, and must undergo random and annual drug testing.
Our fleet carries about 1,900 bus riders about 2,200 miles each day, and we are proud to report an impeccable safety record. This is a true testament of the dedication and commitment the Combs transportation team has to the safe transport of our students.
We continue to grow in student transportation participation and are always evaluating practices to ensure we are utilizing the safest, most efficient tools to transport our students.
Thank you for allowing us the privilege of transporting your children every day. Please utilize the bus stop locator link for bus stop information and times. You will also find answers to frequently asked transportation questions to the left as well.
