This study was an attempt to survey the Sevier County school bus transportation system. The information was collected by questionnaires given to parents, bus drivers and principals.

The review of the related literature indicated that school bus transportation is of concern to many school systems. It was found that most school systems have problems similar to Sevier County. The problems include such factors as overlapping of bus routes, poor road conditions, lack of written rules and schedules and a need for a bus driver training program.

After analyzing the data collected, it was concluded that a need was present for computer scheduling of school bus routes, additional buses were needed and a program of training for bus drivers should be initiated.
