General Information


It is the MISSION of the Madison School District #321 Transportation to provide safe and efficient transportation to the students and staff of Madison School District. The transportation program will provide professional drivers who are competent, well trained and who can maintain proper student disciplining in a positive environment. We will conduct our daily responsibilities in a co-operative, courteous, and helpful manner, to our co-workers, the students we transport, and the general public. This mission will be accomplished by assuring efficient, cost-effective use of human and material resources and encouraging professionalism in a caring environment.


Together we share an equal concern with parents regarding the safe transportation of children to and from school.

We ask that you help us in our effort to teach your children to be aware of and understand the bus rules. Doing so will ensure a safer ride for your children.

  • We encourage everyone in the community to be extra cautious when driving in

    school zones and around school buses.

  • Please stop when red flashing lights have been engaged and remain stopped until school bus lights have been turned off. NEVER pass a school bus if lights are engaged.

  • Please have your children at the bus stop 5 (five) minutes prior to the scheduled time found on the RIDE 360 App and inform your children to go home if the bus does not show up after 10 (ten)

    minutes. The

    school bus driver does not wait for late students.

  • Respect the property of others.

  • Keep your arms, legs, and belongings to yourself.

  • Talk quietly and use appropriate language.

  • Stay away from the street, road, or highway when waiting for the bus.

  • Wait until the bus stops before approaching the bus.

  • After getting off the bus, move away from the bus.

  • If you must cross the street, always cross in front of the bus where the driver can see you. Wait for the driver to signal to you before crossing the street.

  • No fighting, harassment, intimidation, or horseplay.

  • Sit in your seat facing forward.

  • Do not throw any objects.

  • Do not bring any weapon or dangerous objects on the school bus.

  • Do not damage the school bus.

School Bus Safety
Students at Madison School District #321 receives school bus training on how to ride the school bus safely. Students are also educated to be wary of the Danger Zone around the school bus. Please take the time to review and discuss these items with your student at home.
