About the Department
This is the transportation website page for the Northwest Local School District. On this page you can link to find information about inclement weather procedures and the requirement for becoming a bus driver. You can also download the Road Code book, which helps distinguish which schools service the different areas of the district. The Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section includes information about receiving and using bus passes, bus stop locations, bus safety and bus rules and regulations. If you have any questions please contact the transportation office or your student's school.

Introducing Versatrans My Stop™ App: Mobile Access to Real Time Bus Info
Northwest Local Schools Transportation is working with Versatrans My Stop ™ which provides mobile access to live bus information.  This app displays real time updates with the location of the user's assigned school bus, as well as push notifications for users and the estimated time of arrival to their stop. Families can plan for late or on-time arrival, and prevent missed pick-ups or being left outside in inclement weather.
