Current list of AM & PM BUS ROUTES

2022/2023 Bus Routes


*For the first 10 days of school, please add a buffer pick-up and drop off time of +/- 10 minutes. We are experiencing a tremendous amount of families making last minute transportation requests or changes. These additions will impact times. Published routes will be frequently updated.

Please note that there are 'Bus Stops' added to some of the routes this year. If you live on a street that notes a pick-up point "at the corner of" OR where 2 streets intersect, please have your rider meet the bus at this location where noted on time.

As we refine this document throughout September, please EXPECT changes and check back here regularly to verify your child's re-calculated times.

IMPORTANT CUT-OFF NOTICE: If you require transportation or transportation changes, click here to complete a transportation request . All transportation requests entered on Tuesday 8/30 or later will be added after the holiday and in the order that they were received. These rider requests will take 5 working days to complete, starting on Tues (9/6).
