Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission
The Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) requires school districts to obtain carrier profile reports indicating a satisfactory rating from the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission before any charter service is provided, pursuant to WAC 392-144-045 (formerly WAC 392-144-040(3)). Carrier profile reports verify the carrier’s satisfactory safety rating, which is required to transport students.
To obtain a safety rating on a charter bus carrier or excursion carrier please submit an email request to CarrierProfileRequests@utc.wa.gov, or contact by phone at (360) 664-1244.
In your request, please provide the following:
The name of the person requesting the carrier profile.
The school district name, email address or fax number.
The name of the carrier company, the USDOT number and the UTC charter bus permit number. The permit number can be obtained from the charter bus company applying for the contract.
