Transportation Department
Welcome to the Youngstown City School District Transportation Department. Transportation for eligible resident students will be provided by the Youngstown City Schools Transportation Department. It is important that you are familiar with the transportation policies and guidelines contained in this reference guide. Safe, appropriate, and timely transportation is a team effort. Working together, we can provide a positive experience for your student as we transition into a new school year. Please feel free to contact our staff to assist you with any problems or concerns associated with transportation.
E-Link Parent Portal
The Versatrans E-Link Parent Portal allows parents to look up the students bus assignment information. Click on E-Link Parent Portal and log in using the following:

Currently only busing information for Summer School 2017 is available.
