The Independence Local Schools transportation department has a total of 14 regular, contracted bus drivers. Our Head Mechanic, Al DiGiandomenico, maintains our buses. Francine Kane, Service Manager, oversees our transportation department.  The goal of the transportation department is to transport your children in the safest, most efficient way possible.

Bus Route Information

You will be able to access your child's bus information in a couple convenient ways this year using an app called Ride 360 or the Traversa Ride 360 website . I am attaching instructions (Web Directions) If you are using the web based version, the URL code is (App Directions) for downloading the new app which will give you your child's bus information. This system will also allow you to communicate to the transportation department and allow us to communicate with you (ex. bus is running late). You will use your child's school ID number to find their information. If you do not see bus information for your child it is because you did not respond to the email that was sent in June which gave everyone until August 1 to sign up for busing. If this is the case please email me at and I will add your child to a bus so they can begin riding on September 6. Please check your information right before school starts for any changes.

I believe new students that signed up for busing are already routed in, if you are not please contact me at We are also asking that parents of all students that will be attending after school care at the field house fill out the special circumstance form below.

Special circumstances (shared parenting, daycare, different address from home) or changes must be made directly to the Transportation Office by opening, downloading, and completing the following form (CLICK HERE
