Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How do I know if my child is eligible for transportation?
A: Students must live more than 2 mile from the school they are zoned to attend to be eligible for transportation. There are many ways to measure distance.  For the purpose of determining eligibility, the distance measurement will be made along the shortest path using public roads from the edge of the driveway of the prospective rider to the closest driveway or pedestrian walkway entrance of the school. Please note that commercial mapping systems such as Google maps and MapQuest may not be able to accurately measure distances less than 2 mile.
