Transportation

District 300’s Transportation Services Department and Durham School Services work in conjunction with school personnel, district administrators, and parents to provide a safe and efficient service to students.  The safety and security of your child is our number one priority.

 

Our 230 buses and vans are dispatched from three facilities which are based in Algonquin, Carpentersville, and Hampshire.  Each school day we transport more than 16,000 students to over 50 different schools – including those outside of D300 for out-placed students.  Our drivers travel over 300,000 miles each month.

 

We are proud of the fact that we have retained many of the same drivers, dispatchers and routers over the years.  This is a testament to the dedication that the transportation staff has to the students of D300.
