Transportation Services

Our goal is to provide a SAFE and FUN ride for our students. We appreciate your support by ensuring your student(s) understand the expectations for riding a school bus. 

  • All students must follow all Behavior Guidelines which can be found on the School Bus Safety page. 
  • We cannot transport large items that cannot be secured to the bus such as; oversized objects that cannot be secured or held in the student's lap without blocking the aisle or going above the seat back (this includes band instruments, large classroom crafts/projects, and athletic equipment). No skateboards or scooters. 
  • If your student has been injured and requires a scooter or crutches, please contact our office so we can make alternate plans to support your student's needs and ensure safety for all riders. 
  • Parents are not permitted to enter the school bus without prior permission from the Director of Transportation or school administration. This ensures safety for all students. 
  • Please remind your students about the importance of riding as if they were in a classroom and to minimize causing distractions for the driver. Distractions endanger the safety of others. 
  • Students that are ill and have a fever should not ride the school bus. 

Littleton Public Schools Transportation is proud to be part of the largest and safest form of mass transit in the United States. Over half of the 50 million students who attend school in the United States get to and from school in one of almost half a million yellow school buses. According to the American School Bus Council, "Students are about 70 times more likely to get to school safely if they take the school bus instead of traveling by car."

The district operates over 85 buses to transport over 5,500 students and traveling more than 4,000 miles each day. District buses transport students to and from school, extracurricular events, and sporting events, including after hours and on weekends. 

Transporting our students each and every day safely and on time so they are ready to learn is our absolute priority. We want every student's bus ride to be a positive and memorable experience. 

Space Available Application Process

There are a limited number of seats available on existing buses/routes for open-enrolled students. Please be mindful that Space Available requests are based on ridership and therefore approval is not guaranteed. LPS Transportation uses a "Space Available" application process to fill those existing open seats on a first come, first served basis. Should assigned ridership increase during the school year, "space available" rider parents will be given notice of the change and will be given five school days to find an alternative way to get to school.

"Space Available" applications can be submitted for the 2022–2023 school year beginning on July 1, 2022. "Space available" seat assignments may be made prior to the start of the school year, but typically, most assignments will happen after the actual ridership counts have been collected over the first three to four weeks of school. To apply for an available seat, you must complete a Space Available application form (submit online or print it and return it to Transportation Services). Applications will be processed on a first-received basis.
