Welcome to Beach Transportation School Bus Services
Beach Transportation sets the standard for excellence in student transportation services. In business for more than 71 years, we have stood the test of time by delivering remarkable customer service and outstanding value.
We are a full-service student transportation provider; our services including home-to-school, special needs, and field trip transportation, as well as summer and charter trips. Beach Transportation is a third-generation family owned and operated business, which means quicker decision-making and greater flexibility.

That's no small task when you consider that we are the largest private school bus contractor in the state of Montana.
At Beach Transportation, our number one priority is the safety of the students we transport and safety, above all, is the cornerstone on which we build everything. We earn our sterling reputation every day, and have been recognized many times as one of the best in the business. We are a three-time winner of the National School Transportation’s “Golden Apple Award,” given to the top bus operators in the county in recognition of safety, driver training, business practice, vehicle maintenance and superior service. Beach Transportation has also been recognized as one of the “Great Fleets across America” by School Bus Fleet Magazine. In addition, we maintain a #1 rating from the United States Department of Defense for superior operational and safety standards.

Rose Park Neighborhood Council
On behalf of Rose Park Neighborhood Council & Missoula's Community Forum, I would like to thank Beach Transportation for providing, as usual, fabulous bus service during this month's Neighborhood Bus Tour.
The Beachliner was clean, comfortable, & classy - the P.A. system worked great for our various neighborhood representatives, city staff & other speakers.
I also feel I would be remiss if I didn't especially note the driving skills evinced by Clay Hopper - and how gracious he was in dealing with his charges. (I suppose if you can survive a busload of middle school kids, handling the motley crew representing Missoula's neighborhoods seems pretty simple.)
Please pass our kudos on to Clay & all of the fine fords at Beach Transportation who helped make our bus tour such a great success.

UM MOLLO Program to Great Falls
I wanted to let you know that Cliff was an amazing driver and everyone on the bus appreciated his help and his humor on this trip. He was always willing to step in and help with every aspect of the trip. I really appreciated his attention to details and willingness to help out. Please let the powers that be know that he is an excellent addition to your team of drivers. We will be requesting him with future trips.
Thanks for your support and help throughout this process too. You too have been a pleasure to work with.

Target Range School
On February 4th & 5th, Beach Transportation took 30 5th grader and some adults to the Robotics Tournament in Bozeman MT. The bus driver that we had was awesome. He was very pleasant and extremely nice. I am not sure how he kept his sanity to Bozeman and back as there were about 30 5th graders that did not sleep a wink. Great job Beach Transportation for having such awesome drivers

Blackfoot Valley Cattle Women
On May 7th we hosted a youth farm tour. The 3rd and 4th graders of Lowell School came to Potomac to learn about agriculture. The bus drivers who brought them need to receive special KUDOS! They were not only professional; they were Helpful! Lunch time would have been a disaster without their help at the drinks table.
Thanks for having such wonderful employees
