Bus Information update:

Dear North Area Community, 

At Jeffco Public Schools, we know that transportation services provides a vital service to many in our community, and it is our goal to do as much as we can to ensure students can get to school each day.

The Jeffco Public Schools Transportation Department is an essential part of our students' overall  educational experience. It’s our objective to transport our students to and from school and special functions safely and efficiently.

Our transportation department continues to face significant challenges and has been unable to recruit, hire, and retain enough drivers to maintain our current route schedule despite tremendous efforts taken to advertise, attract candidates, and use our current drivers and terminal staff to fill in the gaps to make it work. The bus driver shortage which is a nationwide problem today and in Jeffco, along with the decline in department staff over the last few years, has affected bus services from running safe, consistent routes daily.

After collectively exhausting all our options, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend the following bus routes serving our North area schools as well as selected bus routes in the West area of the District and all bus routes serving Option Schools beginning Monday, October 4, 2021. This change in service directly impacts your student(s). We understand this will cause an inconvenience to your students' daily school routine. The District is finalizing plans to reimburse families impacted by a suspension of services (details will be provided soon).

  • N-1 AM/PM - Mandalay and Standley Lake
  • N-3 AM/PM - Mandalay and Standley Lake
  • N-10 AM/PM - Warder and Moore

  • N-51 AM - Ralston Valley
  • N-51 PM - Oberon and Ralston Valley
  • N-55 AM - Meiklejohn and Ralston Valley
  • N-55 PM - Drake and Ralston Valley

Should something change which enables us to restore your route/bus service, transportation services will communicate to you directly. We are actively working to hire and assign school bus drivers to your students’ routes. In addition, if we are not able to return to our normal bus routes by December 2021, you will be notified of that as well.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this suspension of bus service presents for you and your family. We appreciate your patience as we continue to work through these challenges. If you have any further questions, please contact the terminal leadership team at 303-982-1998.

Hiring bus drivers is one of our district’s most challenging tasks. Know somebody who might be interested? Let them know we are hiring and steps to apply for a job.
