Bus/Transportation Request for 2021-2022

Dear Parent:

WCPSS Transportation is preparing for the next school year. Please read all of the important information below.

Check Your Transportation Status

View your student’s 2021-22 Transportation status via your student’s Homebase/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

Your student’s AM and/or PM transportation codes will display “Y” (yes) or “N” (no) for the 2021-22 school year until routes are posted. Routes usually are posted about 10 days before the start of the school year.

  • If your student’s code is “Y” and your student will be using transportation next school year, no action is required. 
  • If your student’s code is “N” and you would like for your student to use transportation next school year, please submit a transportation request. 
  • If your student is assigned to a bus but is not a bus rider, please submit the decline bus form at www.wcpss.net/declinebus so that we have the most up-to-date information.

If you need further assistance with bus service, contact your student’s school.

Transportation Request Deadlines

If you are not currently registered for transportation but would like service next school year, you must request transportation by the deadline listed below for your student's school calendar to ensure service on the first day. To do so, go to www.wcpss.net/busrider.

  • Year-round calendar schools (regardless of track assignment): June 1
  • Modified calendar schools: June 21
  • Traditional calendar schools: July 19

Thank you for your support of the Wake County Public School System.
