The Red Bluff Joint Union High School District has an enviable record of safe transportation for our bus riding students. This is due in part to the professional training school bus drivers receive to obtain their license, and the continuous training received each year to maintain their certificate. Our school bus drivers take pride in their job and work diligently to keep our students safe.
Did you know the Red Bluff JUHSD Transportation Department:

These incredible statistics serve to give you an idea as to the impact that home-to-school transportation has on our students but it does not tell the story of the personal pride, care and professionalism displayed by each employee in the department as they plan, maintain and drive with the safety of the students always on their minds.
From the greetings in the morning to the salutations in the evenings, our drivers are the first and last employees that many of our students see each day and for over 40 years the Red Bluff JUHSD Transportation Department has performed these tasks without a single at fault injurious accident.
