Welcome to the Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools Department of Transportation. The objective of the Transportation Department is to transport the children of Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools to and from school safely in an efficient and economical manner. Maximum safety must be provided for the children at all times. With over 540 daily bus runs transporting over 10,000 students our school buses cover all of Nash County and the City of Rocky Mount. In addition to transporting students to and from school we also provide transportation for extra curricular events utilizing activity buses. These trips encompass the school district as well as North Carolina, Virginia, and South Carolina.
Fleet maintenance is performed at the Transportation complex in Nashville on our 168 buses and 80 support vehicles from transportation, fleet, maintenance, warehouse, and child nutrition. Safety programs are followed from the state on all buses and include a thorough inspection every 30 calendar days. Last year the school buses traveled 2.4 million miles with only 3 chargeable accidents.
Vehicle routing allows for the overall management of pupil transportation operations. Each bus is assigned a run(s) that the driver follows each day to ensure safety for all students. To monitor the school buses global positioning (GPS) tracks the vehicles "live" for additional safety to our students and drivers. This GPS data integrates with our routing system to ensure all routes are traveling the best way everyday. All buses are also equipped with a 2-way radio that can communicate with the Transportation Department.
It is the philosophy of this organization that a child's learning day begins and ends on the school bus. All members of the transportation team playing an integral role to student achievement and are here to serve the families of Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools.
