About DS Bus Lines

Our Story

Family Owned Business

We are a family-owned and operated employee shuttle & school bus contracting services company located in Shawnee, KS. Previously, under the name School Services and Leasing, Inc., we were one of the largest, privately-owned student transportation services in the US. We incorporated into the Kincaid Group, a collection of Kansas City-based businesses who pride themselves on being family-oriented.

New Name, Same Quality Service

Backed by Our Employees, Knowledge and Experience

Our name may have changed but our employees, knowledge, and experience hasn’t. We invest extensive time and resources into making sure our drivers, mechanics, and other employees are properly trained to provide the best, most reliable service possible as a school bus & shuttle contracting company.

Transporting Passengers Safely

Safety is Our Number one Priority

We strive to be the safest school bus & shuttle contracting company and our dedication to the task has paid off. We are able to provide a safe environment by training our drivers and mechanics extensively and only using state-of-the-art equipment that provides the most updated safety features currently available.

“DS Bus Lines has been the transportation contractor for USD 273 – Beloit for the last three years. We have seen a drastic change for the positive in our transportation services since DS Bus Lines took over our transportation. With DS Bus Lines the service is about the students; getting them to and from the needed points of travel in a safe and efficient manner is their priority.”

-Jeff Travis, Superintendent, Beloit


“Last night one of our teachers had several issues with students being at the wrong place at the wrong time. She reported that the bus driver helped her get kids to the correct buses and even took a student home that was not on his route since all the other buses had been dismissed. I cannot tell you how much we appreciated his “top notch” customer service.”
