A school bus contractor is a private company or proprietorship that provides school bus services to a school district or non-public school. Of the 450,000 school buses operating in the United States, it is estimated that approximately 39% are operated by school bus contractors. In Canada (with some still operated by the school boards) and the United Kingdom, almost all school transportation is performed by contractors.

A school bus contractor may range in size from an individual driver with a single bus, to a small company serving a single school or district, to a large multi-national company with as many as 60,000 buses.[1]

Major school bus contractors in the United States and Canada include Atlantic Express, First Student (and its merger partner, Laidlaw), National Express, and Student Transportation, Inc..
