Our office is located on the southeast quadrant of the Caddo Parish School Board facility located at 1961 Midway Ave, Shreveport, Louisiana 71108.

The CPSB Transportation Department has been featured nationally in the October 2002 Edition of School Bus Fleet Magazine as one of the 2002 Great Fleets Across America. This award showcased the CPSB Transportation Department as the best in the State of Louisiana. The award was given because of efforts made to upgrade the transportation operation. The upgrades include implementing a new computerized routing system, installing two-way radios, strobe lights, crossing arms, video cameras, emission control devices, and child checkmate systems on the school buses. Additional training programs were designed and put in place for the bus drivers and bus attendants including defensive driving and special education training.
