Routes are posted using the menu on the left. Routes are updated periodically and are subject to change without notice. Contact the school office or the transportation department for updated stops and times. Bus stops are added and deleted as needed. Bus stops will be eliminated if there are no riders for 3 days. Arrangements can be made to add a stop by contacting the transportation department at the numbers listed below. State law mandates a distance of no less than 600 feet between bus stops for the purpose of picking up and dropping off students from school.
UPDATE: August 28th - 4:00PM
Due to a driver shortage, some routes will have to be condensed. The Valley 2 High School route has been divided between the Valley 3 and Valley 4 routes. The Town 1 route (Orange Dot at Blake) has been changed to reflect how students are being picked up. Bluewater Lagoon students will ride in on bus #7 (Blue Dot at Blake) and students along Kofa from the high school to 3rd street will ride in on bus #12 (Green Dot at Blake) until further notice. The students will ride home from Blake and Wallace on bus #5. Bus numbers change occasionally due to maintenance issues, but the dot will remain the same. The Town 1 bus will always be the first bus at both Blake and Wallace.
Transportation Department Mission Statement
Our mission is to provide safe, efficient, and service-oriented transportation for the students, staff, and employees of the Parker Unified School District.
Safety is the top priority as we strive to carry out the duties and responsibilities related to district transportation.
This department supports all district transportation needs ranging from busing students to and from school each day, providing special needs transportation, accommodating all extracurricular and activity trip busing needs, and providing vehicles for employees to attend workshops and conferences. All School Bus drivers possess a Commercial Drivers License and pass the State Bus Driver Certification. The transportation department is proud of its safety record and years of service it has provided the children of the Parker community.
