Bus Routes and Schedules

The Department of Transportation is responsible for routing buses in a manner that maximizes safety and efficiency. We routinely conduct evaluations of bus stops and routes, therefore bus stops and bus routes are subject to changes and adjustments as determined by the department. The safety of all school bus stops are evaluated with the understanding that the parent/guardian (or other adult) will provide age-appropriate supervision for their student(s) at the bus stop.

To augment both safety and efficiency, buses are routed so that they travel down main roads when servicing neighborhoods. Bus stops are located so that students can be picked up and dropped off at centralized locations, which are at corners or intersections whenever possible. Ride times for students are shorter if buses are kept on the main arterial and avoid traveling down side streets.

The Department of Transportation attempts to minimize student walk distances from bus stops while maximizing bus use. Some bus stop locations will require students to walk in residential areas along and across streets, with or without sidewalks. Elementary students’ distances to bus stops can extend up to .3 of a mile, under ideal conditions. Secondary students’ distances to bus stops can extend up to .5 of a mile, under ideal conditions. Certain conditions may necessitate students to walk greater distances. These distances are measured by public roads and do not include any private lane or walkway of the child's residence. In all cases, bus stop locations are dependent upon roadway conditions and accessibility.

Students in special programs are subject to different design criteria.

Find My Bus Stop

This web resource allows you to look for the bus stop closest to your home address. Please note that all stop times are estimates only. Times may be affected by traffic conditions, the loading and unloading of students as well as the number of students riding each day. Parents should plan for a 10-minute window before and after the estimated stop time.

Please read our full transportation update for the 2022-23 school year. As noted in the message, preliminary time and bus assignments, which may differ from last school year, are subject to change. We encourage you to check back frequently and appreciate your patience as we work to make final adjustments to ensure our routes and stops are as efficient as possible. 

All students are advised to carry with them identification of their address and an emergency phone number.

The Find My Bus Stop system can also be used to determine a student's attendance zone. Simply input your address and select your student’s grade level to see which schools you are zoned to attend.

If you have questions, you can contact the Transportation Department: Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at 804-365-6520.
