CCS Transportation

  • The transportation of 37,000 students every day is a very important job, and one that Columbus City Schools' (CCS) staff take very seriously.

    The District's bus drivers go through rigorous background checks, and must have or earn a Commercial Driver's License (with a bus endorsement from the Ohio Department of Education) before they may drive a bus.

    We serve students K-12 across the district, along with the Pre-K students with IEPs being served in our CCS classrooms.

    Bus Bulletin

    The CCS Transportation Department is launching “CCS Bus Bulletin,” to send immediate notifications to parents, students, and school administrators about changes in bus pick-up or drop-off times.

    All students in grades Pre-K thru 2nd grade must be met at the bus stop each afternoon by a parent or guardian.

    Parents or guardians can grant permission for transportation to release these students without a parent or guardian by completing a “ School Bus Drop-Off Permission Slip” which can be obtained by your students bus driver.
