Douglas County School District Transportation Department is committed to providing safe and efficient transportation for your children.

We have 37 routes in the Valley and 2 routes based at Lake Tahoe and transport approximately 3,200 students to and from school each day.  

We provide transportation to District students in any grade level who live more than ONE MILE from their school of attendance. The shortest, safest, and most convenient walking path shall measure distance from school. Students with a disability related need specified in their IEP may be transported regardless of their distance from school.

We maintain an excellent fleet of buses that are inspected by the Nevada Highway Patrol twice a year. Our Transportation's Vehicle Maintenance staff provides regular maintenance of buses and keeps them in top working condition.

Snow Day Information

In the event of inclement weather, DCSD's first consideration is the safety of our students.

It may become necessary for us to cancel school, delay pickup times by one or two hours, or pick up students at specific stops for Lake Tahoe Schools (called Main Stops). 

This decision will be made no later than 6:00AM, and our website and Facebook page will display this information by 6:30AM. You will also receive an auto-dialer message informing  you of school closures or delays, providing we have your correct phone numbers. You can check that by logging into your Infinite Campus Parent Portal account and checking your contact preferences and phone numbers.

Local radio and TV stations will also announce school closures or delays.
