Bus Routes

  • Find your transportation information on Home Base
     
    Families can find up-to-date transportation information (including route number, stop location and estimated bus stop arrival times - new for the 2017-18 school year) in your student’s Home Base/PowerSchool account. Sign up for an account at your student’s school. More information on Home Base is available at www.wcpss.net/student-information.
     
    What time should my child get to the bus stop?
     
    Once routes have been posted, parents will be able to see estimated bus stop arrival times in their student's Home Base account. Students should be ready and waiting for the bus at least 10 minutes before the bus is expected to arrive. Actual stop times will vary during the first few weeks of school as families adjust to new routines. We urge parents to be patient as routes settle. Unexpected traffic congestion could also cause buses to be delayed.
     
    If you do not have a Home Base account, you can estimate a bus stop arrival time based on when the route is scheduled to start. To begin, select your student's school in the table below. Then find the stop location that is closest to your residence. For neighborhood bus service, the approximate time between stops is 3-5 minutes. This will vary based on the actual distance, the street network and traffic conditions. 

    When are bus routes posted?

    Transportation will post bus route information for schools based on the following schedule:
    • June 23 for Year-round calendar schools (regardless of track assignment)
    • July 14 for Modified calendar schools
    • August 18 for Traditional calendar schools 
    Once posted, families should confirm the location of their student's bus stop. Each year, bus stops may change based on actual ridership.
