Need to contact the bus office?

Email addresses have been set up for each area bus office.

To better serve you we have set up an email address at each of our four bus offices. With the beginning of the school year being the busiest time of year for transportation, we have set up special email addresses to help serve you better. We know it is frustrating for parents when you can’t get through on the phone lines. We are hoping these email addresses will help relieve some of the frustration the first few weeks of school.

The email addresses will be monitored by transportation personnel assigned to answer and respond to your questions and concerns about bus information. The special email addresses will be open August 1st and will remain open the entire month of August. If you are not able to get through by phone or don’t choose to use email, you are encouraged to visit your area bus office for immediate service.

Transportation Information

Parents,

In order to get transportation information updated as soon as possible, we have opened the parent portal.

When you log in to your parent portal account, you will see the “Transportation Update Form” at the bottom left of the side menu.

It is VERY IMPORTANT that you click on the form and fill this information out before July 22nd.

We are using this system to schedule bus routes for the 2019-2020 school year.

You will be prompted to enter your child’s birthdate to get started and proceed with simply answering whether your child is a car rider, bus rider, day care pick-up/drop-off or walker.

You will be required to fill out a separate form for each child. Select each child through the parent portal to complete transportation information.

If you have already signed up for bus transportation for the upcoming school year, you do not have to register again.

If you are not able to register online, forms will be available at our Safety and Transportation Office located at the Barr Street Learning Center, 610 E. Meeting Street, Lancaster, SC. If you are unable to pick up a form at our Safety and Transportation Office, forms can be emailed or faxed to you by calling our office at (803) 285-6009 or by emailing us at transportation@lcsdmail.net.

Thank you for your prompt assistance in this matter. Bus routes will be scheduled using this information.
