Transportation

The Transportation Department is dedicated to providing safe, cost effective transportation services for our Queen Creek families and community. Our fleet consists of 97 buses ranging from 14 passenger to 84 passenger capacity. Throughout the school year, we transport students to and from 12 district schools and six schools beyond the district boundaries. This includes mainstream, special education, Mckinney/Vento, curricular field trips, athletics, and community events. 

Student safety is paramount as we strive to continuously support the educational process. Our school bus drivers are thoroughly trained and highly proficient in all vehicle components and school bus operations. Our fleet maintenance staff work diligently to care for our fleet, ensuring our buses are safe, operational, and compliant. Our office staff is focused on customer service responsiveness and proactive to our district and community needs.

We are available from 5:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. You may contact us at (480) 987-5982.

Launch of Here Comes the Bus App for Parents

The Queen Creek Unified School District Transportation Department is proud to announce the launch of the “Here Comes the Bus” app! This app will give QCUSD families whose children currently ride the bus real-time alerts with the bus number, location, and time of arrival. The purpose of this letter is to communicate what bus-riding families need to know in order to use “Here Comes the Bus”. If your child does not currently ride a QCUSD bus, you may disregard this notice.

Ensure your student has a bus pass with a barcode. If your child does not have a bus pass, email hctb@qcusd.org the following information: child name, grade level, and school of attendance. Drivers will distribute the passes to the appropriate students.

Download the free “Here Comes the Bus” app. The app is available for iPhones and Androids. Search “Here Comes the Bus” in your app store.

Once you have downloaded the free app, create a profile with an email address that you check often and set a password for your account.

Add your bus-riding student to your profile by entering the ID found on the student’s bus pass and the school code 29294. The school code is the same for all QCUSD schools. If you have multiple children riding the bus, follow this step for each student.

Once your “Here Comes the Bus” profile is active, you will begin to receive emails regarding the status of your child’s bus. You can also receive this information via text by adjusting your app settings.

The “Here Comes the Bus” app will go live in QCUSD beginning Friday, October 30. For further assistance, questions, and/or requests regarding “Here Comes the Bus”, please email the transportation department or call (480) 987-5982 from 5:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Helpful Transportation Tips

  • Have your student at his or her designated bus stop five minutes prior to the scheduled stop.
  • Have your child stay at least 10 feet away from the pick up area until the bus comes to a complete stop and the driver motions for him/her to board.
  • Please instruct your child to stay in his/her seat while the bus is in motion.
  • If you meet your child at the bus stop at the end of the day, please be on time.
