The Transportation Department provides home-to-school transportation to traditional, year-round, and special education students who reside within the board-approved busing guidelines, as well as transportation for field trips. The district’s buses travel more than 2.5 million miles a year and transports more than 10,000 students each day.

Elk Grove Unified recognizes the important role buses play in saving lives, reducing traffic and improving air quality. The district operates one of the cleanest fleets in California. Thanks to grants from our local air quality district, Elk Grove Unified currently operates 20 buses that run on clean, compressed natural gas. In addition, the district received grant funding that enabled the placement of 58 particulate traps on buses – dramatically reducing emissions. Currently, Elk Grove Unified is pursuing other grant opportunities to test one of the first hybrid electric school buses when they become available.
