Our buses travel approximately 1,300 miles per day and transport 1,000 students. In addition, our team of drivers and busses service all extracurricular events for Liberty Union-Thurston Local Schools. 

Eligibility

All students must have an approved transportation section in the Liberty Union Parent Portal to be assigned a bus route. Bus routes are established and published on the portal. If you have a question about a bus route, please contact the Transportation Department at 740-862-4171 ex.4147 or adam.leith@libertyunion.org.

Bus Stops

Students may be required to walk .5 mile to & from the bus stop or school. Also, taken into consideration is safe walking area, location of stop along with many other factors. Parents/guardians are responsible for the safety and supervision of their children to and from designated bus stops, as well as at the bus stop. The district is responsible for students once they have boarded the bus. Please plan to have children arrive 5-10 minutes prior to their route times. Your child will be assigned a place of safety at all stops.

Bus Safety

For the safety of our students and bus drivers, parents are encouraged to review the Bus Riding Reminders and Rules with their children. Violation of these rules could result in the revocation of bus riding privileges.  If you have a concern, please contact the director of transportation.
