ICS aims to provide a safe, high quality, and efficient bus service that meets the needs of all ICS students by delivering quality of service to and from school. 


ICS School buses are compliant as per ADEK and DMAT guidelines and regulations, including the length of time students are riding buses. The assignment of Bus/Transportation (Bus #) will be determined by the route that corresponds with the student’s home. 


All school buses will be checked and maintained as per ADEK and DMAT safety standards. Drivers and Bus Escorts are qualified, licensed from DMAT, experienced, and work under the supervision of the ICS Transportation Coordinator.
