    Department Mission

    The mission of the Department of Pupil Transportation employees is to work cooperatively with students, parents, teachers, and administrators. The Department of Pupil Transportation is an essential member of the educational team.  It is the employee's responsibility to deliver the student to and from school safely, on time, and promote to the young citizens in their charge the characteristics necessary for the well-being of each child.

    The Department of Transportation operates on the authority of Federal and State laws, as well as directives from the Virginia Board of Education and the Richmond School Board. The primary mission of the Department of Pupil Transportation is to provide transportation to and from schools within the Richmond Public Schools' system. The department also provides auxiliary transportation for students from schools to various other sites, including vocational and exceptional education centers, sports activities, and off-campus field trips.

    Two-thirds of the entire Richmond Public Schools population is transported daily on buses managed by the Department of Pupil Transportation.
