We continue to experience bus driver shortages and anticipate more students may ride the bus next school year. It is highly recommended that families provide their own transportation to and from school.
We are hiring!
Parkway is currently looking to hire about 30 bus drivers. If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a bus driver, let us know! Our students love our bus drivers and it’s a great job. Here’s why:
- No experience is necessary and we will pay you to learn how to drive a bus.
- Parkway bus drivers receive paid health insurance benefits, paid holidays, guaranteed hours and summers off. Starting pay is $16 per hour.
- If you work for Parkway, you can enroll your children in Parkway Schools even if you live outside the district.
- It’s a great job if you are retired and a great job if you like kids.
If you know someone who is interested, they can call 314-415-8401 or here is the Link to apply! Thank you for helping our students get to and from school safely every day!
Changes to Bus Transportation
Parents should call transportation at (314) 415-8400 to request a change. Transportation will evaluate the space available. If space is not available, the student(s) will be added to a waitlist. No changes can be made during the first two weeks of school in order to maintain consistency of routes and bus stops for all students.
For students who are in the VICC program, if parents need to make a change, they can contact Parkway VST directly at 314-415-9059 or 314-415-9060 after 11:30 am. There will be no changes for the first two weeks of school.
New to Parkway
If you recently enrolled your child in Parkway, your bus route and bus stop will typically be available within a few business days after registration is complete. For questions about your stop or bus, you can call Transporation at (314) 415-8400.
The mission of the Transportation Department is to support the educational mission and vision of Parkway by safely transporting resident students to and from school and school-related events economically, efficiently and on time.
