Community Involvement

Community Events

Here at Beach Transportation we are a local family-owned business.  We are dedicated to our community and the safety of the most precious cargo, our children. Every year we stay involved with multiple community events to help promote the safety of our kids. We annually attend the Kids Fair, Fall Kids Fest, and Safe Kids Day. These events give us the opportunity to bring out a bus for kids to climb in, to get comfortable, and most importantly to share safety information.

Our safety director and staff help teach children safe practices all year-round. Through the year, safety demonstrations, school functions, and other presentations keep us busy! If you would like to schedule a bus safety presentation, or simply have questions about additional safety information- please reach out! You can email our safety director, HERE.

Toy Drive

Each year, Beach Transportation is a proud community partner of the annual toy drive.

Griz for Kids help children in need get new, unwrapped toys to them during the holiday season. Our staff help promote, donate, and sort the toys after the toy drive is completed. Hundreds of toys are donated each year. Help us make 2023 a success too! Can’t make it in person to the Griz Game to drop off your toys? No worries! You can help donate to the Mountain Broadcasting Foundation directly, either online or through their provided Venmo QR Code.

For more information on the toy drive and its donations, head over to their website.

Food Drive

Each year, Beach continues the annual tradition of giving back. We proudly donate food to the Missoula Food Bank to help those in need of a healthy Christmas meal. We start taking donations from staff after Thanksgiving break which continues till the last Friday before Christmas. This year, help us make our goal of 2,000 lbs of food in 2023!



We are a proud supporter of many local organizations and donate to community partners throughout the year. Beach Transportation believes we can be a stronger community when we all come together to support each other. We hope to continue to support all of these wonderful efforts that make Missoula so special:
