At West Platte, we are committed to providing safe, efficient and reliable transportation service to our students that contributes to their overall academic success. Student transportation is a privilege to be enjoyed by eligible students only as long as they act responsibly, follow all rules and regulations, and respond positively to the directions and requests of bus drivers.
West Platte contracts our transportation services through Apple Bus Company in Missouri. Linda McDowell is the Transportation Director and can be reached at (816) 678-4540.
The District runs six routes plus one for early childhood. There is also a bus available for special needs students. Each of the routes are no longer than 45 minutes. The school also runs a Vocational School bus route from the school to the Northland Career Center in Platte City, daily.
All drivers are CDL certified and attend safety training once a month. The drivers are randomly drug tested and the buses have an annual inspection by the highway patrol. Safety is the District’s number one priority.
