The goal of transportation is to provide reliable service to the students of Beaufort County. School buses can be delayed from time-to-time when running morning and afternoon routes, and parents can call their students’ schools for more information on delays, schedules and routes.  Traffic flow, road construction and other factors can cause delays, and it’s not unusual for pick-up and drop-off times to fluctuate by five to 10 minutes.  Before calling the school for an update on your child’s school bus, please allow 10 minutes past the regularly scheduled pick-up or drop-off time. 

If you have a safety concern or other transportation issue, please contact the Beaufort County School District Transportation Office in Beaufort (843-322-0770) or Bluffton (843-706-8400).
