Welcome to the Wilson School District Transportation Department
With the new school year starting, we wanted to reach out to our families regarding transportation assignments. We surveyed families a few weeks ago and asked if you would be using our busing services to transport your child to and from school this year. Based on the results of that survey, we have worked to reduce the total number of students on our buses to an average of 24 or less, which allows us to observe social distancing. Thank you to all of the families who have opted to transport their student this year. This has helped us tremendously! If you are able to transport your student and did not indicate that through the survey, please contact our transportation department at 610.670.0180 x1232 so we can make that adjustment to our schedule.
If you DID elect to utilize Wilson’s transportation services for the 2020-2021 school year, please note that you will not be receiving postcards from our transportation department regarding your bus assignment. Our Transportation Department now offers parent(s)/guardian(s) a way to find information about their child’s District provided transportation using the on-line “InfoFinder i” system. Click this link and once you are in the system, fill in your address (St, Dr, Rd, Ln, Ave, Blvd) and zip code. Select school and grade using the drop down menu provided and then select “search.” This system replaces the postcards that were mailed annually and enables us to provide real-time information about bus schedules for all district families.
The InfoFinder System will be LIVE on Friday, August 21 at noon, so you will be able to access your student’s transportation information at that time.
We are asking our families to please be patient with us this school year as we have numerous changes we are processing on a daily basis to our transportation schedule. The InfoFinder system is updated on a daily basis and always includes the most recent information regarding bus schedules.
Thank you again for all your support and cooperation as we prepare for the 2020-2021 school year.
The Wilson School District Transportation Department is located behind Wilson Southern Middle School at 2900 Windmill Road in Sinking Spring. Office hours are Monday through Friday from 6:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The Transportation Department is responsible for the safe, daily transportation of approximately 4,200 students attending Wilson School District Schools and local Non-Public schools located within 10 miles of our School District boundaries. These tasks are handled by our driving staff of sixty-one (61) Daily Route Drivers, sixteen (16) Substitute/Trip Drivers, and fourteen (14) School Bus Aides. Additionally, we have sixteen (16) Crossing Guards at various intersections around the School District to help keep our students safe when walking to or from school each day.
The Wilson School District’s maintenance facility is staffed by two (2) full-time mechanics and is fully equipped to perform all required maintenance and most repairs to our vehicles. Additionally, our mechanics are certified to perform Pennsylvania State Inspections on all School District Vehicles, including bi-annual State School Bus Inspections.
