  • 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) 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 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 arrival 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, families can estimate bus stop arrival time based on when the route is scheduled to start. To begin, find your student’s school in table below. Then find the stop location that is closest to your residence. A stop marked “doorside” means your student should not cross the street to board the bus. For neighborhood bus service, the approximate average time between stops is 3 to 5 minutes. The time between stops will vary based on the actual distance, the street network, and traffic conditions. Parents are asked to use their own judgment knowing distances between published stops.

    When are bus routes posted?

    Transportation will post bus route information for schools based on the following schedule:

    • June 24 for Year-round calendar schools (regardless of track assignment)
    • July 16 for Modified calendar schools
    • August 13 for Traditional calendar schools

    Once posted, families should confirm the location of their student’s bus stop. Bus stops change each year based on actual ridership
