Welcome to the Transportation Department

Our bus drivers safely operate district-owned school buses while they provide our students with transportation to and from school and district sponsored activities. District buses driven by our employees are also used by outside agencies; these services are provided on a contracted basis and fees may be charged. Our vehicle mechanics maintain Natomas Unified’s buses, service vehicles.


Natomas Families,

The online school bus application has to be completed every school year. Please be advised there have been multiple revisions in bus routes. There are different bus pick up and drop off locations. See below for transportation applications, bus schedules, and waiver forms.

IMPORTANT: Please note that there is a 1.5 air-mile walking distance for middle school students and a 3 air-mile walking distance for high school students.
