Common Questions with Answers:

What should I do if the bus is running late or hasn't shown up?

Students should be at the stop 5 minutes prior to their scheduled time and are directed to return home if the bus has not arrived 15 minutes after the scheduled time. If your bus is not running on time, please immediately contact Student Transportation at 531-299-0140.

What if a bus comes to my child’s assigned stop and it is not the assigned bus number?

At times, due to unforeseen situations, a substitute bus may be assigned to your child’s stop. If this happens, the driver will make every attempt to have your child’s original bus number clearly visible in the front side window.  Sometimes your child’s bus number may not be visible. If your student cannot clearly see the bus number, be sure to let the driver know so any necessary changes can be made.

How do I find out my child’s bus stop?
