The Sherburne-Earlville Central School District operates 21 daily bus routes, which cover 160 square miles, encompass 2 counties and 10 towns, and border 5 other districts. We also transport students to various BOCES programs in 3 other counties. We run 4 buses for both our 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. late runs to ensure that students will arrive home in a timely manner from their after-school activities. The fleet travels approximately 500,000 miles per year.

The district employs a transportation staff of 25 Bus Drivers, 19 Aides/Monitors, 2 Mechanics, 1 Head Bus Driver, and 1 typist. The drivers are evaluated annually for driving techniques, student management, and safe loading/unloading.

The district completes three mandatory bus-evacuation drills during the school year (the first week of school; between November 1 and December 31; and before April 30).

During the 2018-2019 school year, the district replaced the entire fleet with 30 new 2018 Thomas C-2 65 passenger conventional buses. All buses are equipped with state-of-the-art 7 camera digital video systems. We also have 5 Tahoes, 2 Suburbans, and 2 Grand Caravans.
