Bus Route Information

UPDATE: As of September 1, 2023, Darien 61 has hired an additional bus driver and will run our regular bus routes until further notice. 

Link to Regular Bus Route Times

Please note, the district has just enough bus drivers at this time (6 drivers for 6 routes).  The Alternate Bus Routes will remain as one option for use in the case of a situation where the district does not have enough drivers to cover the routes (if 2 or more drivers are out sick on one day for example).  If a situation were to occur, the district would communicate with the families involved and utilize one of the following options (depending on the circumstances):

  • Cancel one bus route for the day

  • Have one bus route picked up later in the morning and/or dropped off later after school

  • Implement the Alternate Bus Route Schedule for a period of time

  • Other option(s) as needed
