About the Transportation Department

Mission Statement - The Caddo Parish School Board Transportation Department provides safe, efficient, and timely transportation for all eligible students to and from school.

The Transportation Department is located at 3928 Joplin St, Shreveport, Louisiana 71108. Our office is located on the southeast quadrant of the Caddo Parish School Board facility located at 1961 Midway Ave, Shreveport, Louisiana 71108. We also maintain a transportation facility in Vivian, Louisiana at North Caddo High School.

There are 365 Bus Drivers and 112 Bus Attendants who work with our students every day. Our office consists of the Transportation Director, one Routing Supervisor, three Field Supervisors, a Transportation Analyst, six secretaries and two dispatchers. Our garages have three Shop Foremen, parts personnel, and twenty-three mechanics. The mechanics are responsible for maintaining the Caddo Parish School Board's Bus Fleet and all other board owned vehicles. Our school buses are thoroughly inspected twice a year to ensure safety for our students in Caddo Parish and to comply with State of Louisiana vehicle safety inspection laws.

Bus Rules

Back To Top

Permission for any student to ride in a school bus is a PRIVILEGE, NOT A RIGHT. The safety and welfare of student riders depends on proper behavior and observance of the following rules and regulations. Any pupil who violates any of these rules will be reported to the proper authority and his/her privilege of transportation may be denied. These rules apply to STUDENT ACTIVITY TRIPS as well as regular bus routes to and from school.

5. Parents of special needs students are required to assist the student on and off the bus at his/her stop.
