The mission of the Livingston Public Schools Transportation Department is to provide safe and efficient transportation for students living in rural areas around Livingston.

School Bus
  • ​Students who live more than 3 miles from their school are eligible to ride on buses for free.
  • Students who live less than 3 miles from their school may enroll to ride for a fee, if they board the bus along an existing rural bus route and if there is room on the bus.
  • Special transportation is available for children when their Individual Education Plan (IEP) reflects such a need.
  • Bus routes follow main roads for the safety of the children.  Routes lengths are limited by distance and time as well as by Park County snow plowing and sanding priorities.
  • The LPS Transportation Department also provides service for student field trips, athletics, and co-curricular activities.
  • LPS bus drivers meet all requirements of the State of Montana. ​
