Welcome to Concord Community Schools! We hope you find this section of the website beneficial in answering some of your questions related to transportation for the 2019-2020 school year.

Currently, the Concord Transportation Department consists of 29 bus drivers who utilize a fleet of 37 school buses to transport about 4,100 students to and from school. We employ two on-site mechanics to help service and maintain our vehicles. On any given morning or afternoon, this translates to our department transporting over 75% of our student body. We travel approximately 1,200 miles per day covering the 28 square miles of Concord and other Elkhart County locations.

Seven schools are serviced as we meet the transportation needs of our general education, special education, preschool, Head Start, Alternative School, and Elkhart Area Career Center students.

Every school year we provide over 30,000 miles of extracurricular travel for our athletes, musicians, and academic students.  

Our department takes great pride in safely

transporting students. We are ready to serve you and your child.

Call us at 875-6577 if you have further questions.
