2017-2018 Information for Bus Riders

  • WCPSS Transportation is preparing for the 2017-18 school year.

    • Postcards will be mailed to families of current bus riders starting the week of May 15. If your (transportation eligible) child will be riding the bus from the same address to the same school next year, you do not need to take action. If you need to update your bus service, please go online at www.wcpss.net/busrider.

    Ø You can find up-to-date transportation information in your student’s Home Base/PowerSchool account. 

    Ø For 2017-18, WCPSS Transportation will begin using email and text messaging to provide bus service information.  Families must keep their email addresses and phone numbers current in Powerschool to receive timely and important information.

    • On May 15, 2017, we will begin receiving, via the web, requests from transportation eligible families for the 2017-18 school year.
    • Any transportation eligible family who needs to make a change for 2017-18 is requested to meet the following deadlines to ensure service on the first day of school:  July 24 for Traditional calendar schools

    Requests received after these cutoff dates will be processed in the order received and WCPSS Transportation will make every effort to provide service as quickly as possible.
