San Dieguito Union High School District Logo
The San Dieguito Union High School Transportation Department operates a fleet of 60 school buses to serve our students' transportation needs. Statistically, school buses provide the safest method of transporting students to and from school.  Students are 50 times safer riding a school bus than driving themselves, 20 times safer than riding with a parent.  The State of California requires School Bus Drivers to complete an extensive training and licensing program in order to become a certified driver.  The Transportation Department operates two bus terminals.  Our special needs bus fleet is headquartered at La Costa Canyon High School, and home-to-school buses operate out of the bus yard at San Dieguito High School Academy.  All District buses are tracked by GPS to enhance safety and security.  San Dieguito Transportation is home to 62 classified employees; of which, there are 53 School Bus Drivers, 4 Bus Aides and 5 members of the Garage Staff.  The Transportation Department workforce is well-organized, highly-trained and dedicated to student safety.  Our professional staff works hard to maintain a valued service to our students, school and community.
