Lakewood Transportation Department
The mission of the Lakewood Public Schools Transportation Department is to provide all students with safe and reliable transportation to and from school every day. Lakewood kids are our most precious cargo, that's why we work to implement the highest safety standards and maintain an excellent rating in the annual bus safety inspection conducted by the Michigan State Police.
Annually, our fleet travels many miles providing services to our school community. As part of the services we provide, we’re pleased and proud to offer transportation for a large number of academic and athletic trips. We are proud of our transportation staff. Please feel free to contact us should you have a question or need assistance! All temporary or permanent bus stop requests must be submitted through the Transportation department not through the school or teacher.
