Welcome to the School Bus Transportation side of the Helena Public Schools Website.



 None at this time.


Mission Statement: To ensure to the best of our capability that all students who ride Helena Public School Buses receive the best and safest school bus transportation possible.

We ask you draw your attention to the right side of our website.  You will see various menu options that we’ve built in the hopes it will answer all questions you have regarding school bus transportation within the Helena Public Schools District.  It is highly recommended you go to each section and familiarize yourself with these areas. 

Helena Public Schools contracts all of its home-to-school bus services. First Student is on the second year of a seven year contract that began in July 2012 to provide these services across both our elementary and high school districts. Helena Public Schools remains responsible for the bus routing and handling of student discipline, with shared office space at the local First Student facility.

To find out if a bus is running late today, call the recorded bus delay line at 324-2057.

In the case you are not able to find your answers on our website, or if there are agencies we have listed within our website that are not able to answer or resolve your questions and/or issues to your satisfaction, please call our Transportation office at 324-2100 or email at sdietrich@helena.k12.mt.us.  We will be more than happy to assist you.  Please understand depending on volume of calls/emails it may take anywhere from 1-3 days to get back with you, but we will ensure that any and all issues are resolved to the best of our capability.

It is our hope to prove you with the best service possible so here again, please contact us at any time.

We thank you for allowing us to serve you.
