Transportation

row of buses

We strive to keep students safe and families informed as we periodically make improvements to our transportation services. The criteria we use in making these decisions is always based on safety. The process of developing safety protocol involves parents, bus drivers, local law enforcement and fire department, administrators from the Town of Avon, Avon School Board, school administrators, and others.

Would you like to learn more? Please download and review our rules and guidelines brochure. Then, feel free to scroll and click through the information on this page. We provide it so you can understand how our department works with you to make sure your children get safely to and from school each day.

If you have questions relating to your child’s bus stop, routing or pick up times, contact us at (317) 544-6140. Please check back often for the most up-to-date information. It is our goal to keep you advised of changes as they occur. Look for additional correspondence during the school year.

All of us at the Transportation Center appreciate and acknowledge the cooperation and support we receive from families and the community.

Kind Regards,
ACSC Transportation Department
