The Transportation Department is committed to the safe and reliable transportation of all of the students in the Saco schools. Each morning and afternoon our drivers perform pre-trip inspections on their assigned buses/vans ensuring that they are safe and free of defects before they leave on their routes. All of our buses are equipped with interior security cameras with audio to monitor occupant behavior. In addition, all buses are equipped with exterior cameras to record motorists who illegally pass our buses when they are stopped loading or unloading students with their red lights flashing. The pictures and video can be copied by the Transportation Department and sent to our local law enforcement agencies to use to track down the offenders.
Our Transportation Department also provides busing for all Saco students attending Thornton Academy as well as all Arundel students attending Thornton Academy Middle School (TAMS). In addition to the daily bus route for the schools of Saco, the buses also transport students/staff to field trips, athletic events, music festivals, math meets, and various other after-school activities.
Please contact the Transportation Supervisor, Jeanne Anderson, with questions in reference to bus routes, pickup/drop off requests, or other concerns at 207-284-5959.
You may also contact the Director of Transportation, Mike Garrity at 207-284-4505 ext. 36
Rules and Regulations for Passengers Riding School Buses
IMPORTANT BUS CHANGE:
Very important information for parents of students riding the following buses:
Starting on October 3rd we will have buses 702, 703, and 739 meet at the hiking trail parking lot on Flag Pond Road and transfer students.
This should work to expedite the trip to both schools.
