Welcome to the Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools Department of Transportation. The objective of the Transportation Department is to transport the children of Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools to and from school safely in an efficient and economical manner. Maximum safety must be provided for the children at all times. With over 540 daily bus runs transporting over 11,000 students our school buses cover all of Nash County and the City of Rocky Mount. In addition to transporting students to school we also provide transportation for extra curricular events utilizing activity buses. These trips encompass the school district as well as North Carolina, Virginia, and South Carolina.
Fleet maintenance is performed at the Transportation complex in Nashville on the 268 bus fleet. Safety programs are followed from the state on all buses and include a thorough inspection every 30 calendar days. Also maintained by the maintenance team are the 100 support vehicles for the school system. These include transportation, fleet, maintenance, warehouse, and child nutrition vehicles.
Vehicle routing allows for the overall management of pupil transportation operations. Each bus is assigned a run(s) that the driver follows each day to ensure safety for all students. To monitor the school buses global positioning (GPS) has been introduced to add additional safety for the students and drivers. All buses are also equipped with a 2-way radio that can communicate with the Transportation Department.
