About the Department


Providing safe consistent transportation service is a mutual arrangement involving Clover Park School District transportation personnel, students, parents and the community.

Our dedicated staff is committed to the safe transportation of your child to and from school. We are proud working partners with the Lakewood Boy's & Girl's Club, Child Youth Services of Fort Lewis and sponsors of the Kids at Hope philosophy "All kids are capable of success...NO EXCEPTIONS!"

Safety is our primary goal and responsibility. This is documented through the Washington State Patrol Bus Inspections of Outstanding Rating. Annually, we safely travel 1,189,811 miles to and from 33 schools within and outside Clover Park School District's boundaries. In addition to driving to and from school, we transport students an additional 82,384 miles for field trips, sports events and after school activities.
