Transportation is available for all students in grades K-12 who live within the Oriskany Central School District.
Our Transportation department employs 24 staff members, including 18 bus drivers and substitutes, and four full-time bus monitors. They are a tight-knit group who work together to ensure the safety of students while riding to or from school.
Our fleet of school buses includes nine full size school buses and five mini buses, with two of each bus type running on propane fuel. We are the first school district in New York State to have Minotaur propane buses and Minotaur propane buses with wheelchair access. Propane buses offer the lowest total cost-of-ownership, reduced emissions and a quieter bus ride that makes it easier for students and bus drivers to hear each other! Our district also has three buses outfitted with complete outside camera systems to keep students safe when entering and exiting the bus.
Student safety is an important consideration for all of us. Special training sessions allow students and drivers to become familiar with safety rules and regulations. Student conduct is closely monitored by district administrators to see that safety rules are followed.
We urge everyone in the community to join with us to ensure that we have an injury-free year for students. Please watch carefully for student pedestrians and stop when you see the flashing red lights on the buses.
