Transportation

 

Our Mission

Together as a team, we at Jenison Transportation Services take pride in the services we provide.  Safety, care, professionalism and cost-effectiveness are our priorities.


Accomplishing Our Mission

With a fleet of 33 buses, our highly qualified drivers transport approximately 2,400 students each day over 16 square miles. In addition, our mechanic works hard to keep the bus fleet in excellent working condition. We consistently receive the highest marks for safety and reliability from the Michigan State Police bus inspection team.


Transportation Policy

Transportation is available for students living within the Jenison School District and outside of the walk area (1.2 miles) for the school they will be attending.  If a student is bused, in addition to the home area stop, they have the option of one extra bus stop at a caregiver location. Daycare provider information will be reviewed, and if possible, Transportation will try to arrange busing (for more information please refer to the Caregiver Transportation Guidelines). Additionally, transportation is not guaranteed transportation if the caregivers are located outside of the home enrollment area.

For Elementary Bus Riders Only:

Students must ride the bus 3 days a week or more to receive a bus stop within a 0.25 mile walking distance from their homes.  If students ride only 1-2 days per week, they will be placed at the nearest group stop available to them.  These stops are not guaranteed to be within the 0.25 mile walking distance.

It is the parents' responsibility to get their student to and from their designated bus stop safely.

Bus routes change every year.  We advise all parents/guardians to review busing information prior to the 1st day of school. 

 2020-2021 busing information will be available to view after the 2nd week of August on our online bus tracking system EDULOG*.  To find out more information on how to register – please visit our GPS Bus Tracking tab.
