FREE CDL SCHOOL BUS CLASSES

*Free CDL School Bus Classes*

We are offering free CDL classes to potential bus drivers for the Russell County School System.  The work hours are great and the benefits for full-time drivers are rewarding.  If you are interested in driving for Russell County Schools, please call (706) 321-2268 for further information.

Transportation is provided for students in grades K-12. School Bus Transportation is a vital and integral part of the Russell County Education System. Russell County is a rural community that covers over 640 square miles. We transport on average 2,800 students 3,600 miles every day. The fleet is composed of 64 buses with 50 of these buses on regular routes and 5 special needs routes.

It is recommended that students arrive at the bus stop 5 minutes before the bus is scheduled to arrive. Please inform your child to wait a reasonable amount of time for the bus arrival. Please keep in mind that buses may not always arrive on time due to adverse weather conditions or traffic delays.

Any student whose behavior is detrimental to the welfare or safety of other students or who refuses to follow directions may be denied the privilege of riding the school bus.

Our mission: Provide the safe, efficient, and cost effective transportation to all eligible students of the Russell County School District.

Questions regarding transportation should be directed to Ward Dudley, Transportation Supervisor, (706) 321-2268.
