Transportation services for the district are provided by
Student Transportation of America (STA)
The district contracts with Student Transportation of America (STA) to provide transportation of eligible students to and from schools within their attendance area. Though not required by law, transportation to the school in your attendance area is provided according to the guidelines set forth in Board of Education Policy EEA. Elementary school students who live more than one mile from the school, and middle school students who live more than one and one-half miles from school are eligible to ride the bus to and from school. The district does not provide transportation to students attending programs or "schools of choice" outside their attendance area. Students may not ride a bus other than their STA-assigned bus.

Pueblo School District 60 busing information
The school district determines which students are eligible for bus transportation based on the student’s grade level and the distance their home is from their school.
Bus routes are tiered so that each bus can pick up students for two to three schools each morning and afternoon. Generally high school students are picked up earliest and elementary school students and middle school students picked up later. About 2,500 Pueblo students ride regular bus routes to school each day.
Parents, guardians and anyone else who will be dropping off or picking up students at schools are reminded to use the approved designated drop-off spots. For the interest of safety, only buses will be allowed in busing pick-up/drop-off lanes.
