    Long before most of us are awake, the school day is beginning for the East Ramapo Transportation Department.

    As the sun rises over the horizon, East Ramapo's bus drivers start their day by conducting pre-trip inspections of each of their vehicles.  It is only 6:00 AM, but they are beginning a day that will extend until well after the sun has set.

    The first buses pull out shortly before 6:30AM to begin picking up high school students throughout the 30 square miles that make up the East Ramapo Central School District.  They continue running throughout the day, picking up and delivering children to one of the District's fifteen public schools, or one of the dozens of private schools.  The entire process is then reversed as the students return home.

    Given the changing weather, heavy traffic conditions, and numerous schools with multiple arrivals and dismissals, it is easy to see the complexities that the Transportation Department deals with every day of every school year as they safely transport our students.
