Bus routes are created to enhance student safety while maximizing vehicle efficiency. Stops are created that allow students to wait off the main roadway for the bus if possible. Stops are not placed in dead end streets whenever possible to minimize bus accidents while backing (backing is a very dangerous maneuver for a school bus). Stops are spread as far apart as criteria will allow to decrease the number of stops each bus will make on its route thus minimizing riding time for the students.
Students may be required to walk up to 1.5 miles to a bus stop. Bus routes are designed to limit student ride time to no more than 45 minutes one-way if possible, however, most students ride under 30 minutes one-way.
The above design criteria are for regular students only. Students in special programs are subject to different design criteria. Contact Transportation Customer Service for additional information.
Daily Service Criteria
Regular transportation is scheduled to provide service to student riders. Bus stops that do not have riders for 3 days may be suspended temporarily for lack of ridership to conserve district resources. Infrequent riders should contact the Transportation Department stating their wish to ride when service is needed if their bus stop has historically low ridership to verify stop time and location.
Routes are subject to change. Stop times can change so check the webpage each week. Campuses will be notified of any changes to routes, bus numbers, or stop times. Thank you for your patience as we work to ensure students are provided safe and reliable transportation to and from school.
