Transportation FAQs

How many passengers does a bus hold? 

Most school buses have a 72-passenger capacity. 

Why does a bus seem overcrowded? 

It is our goal to fully utilize all the space on our buses while maintaining student safety. School bus capacity is determined based on how many middle school and high school students are riding each day. In our fleet, it is assumed that middle school students can ride three to a seat and high school students can ride two to a seat. 

How can I get my bus stop changed? 

If you meet the eligibility criteria and do not have a stop within a mile of your house, you can contact your campus front office to request a stop change. 

How long will it take for a change to be processed? 

All stops will be processed within two weeks of when they are submitted to the Transportation Department. 

The bus did not show up on time for my child, how long should he/she wait at the stop?
