The mission of the Crete-Monee School District’s Department of Transportation is to provide clean, safe, and friendly services in an environment that fosters positive social interaction while providing efficient school transportation services.
Crete-Monee School District services six communities, totaling approximately eighty square miles. Throughout the course of the year the district will transport approximately 5,400 students. This service is contracted out through a local company – First Student Bus Company. They provide the district with over 100 bus routes throughout the course of any given school day. During the school year, buses will travel over 1.5 million miles to transport our students. Illinois law requires transportation of students living over a mile and a half from the school they attend. State law also allows for students to walk up to one and a half miles to their designated stop; however, the district tries to be more accommodating.
First Student Bus Company Information
Although the district maintains close communications with First Student, most issues and concerns are resolved directly with the bus company. First Student can be reached by calling (708) 755-5907. You can access the Illinois State Board of Education Transportation Guidelines
