Yellow Bus and Vendor Transportation Updates on Friday, August 25th

Happy Friday! As traditional calendar schools gear up for the new school year, we would like to bring to your attention important information and reminders related to yellow bus transportation and students who access WCPSS vendor transportation.

Please be patient with transportation. With all the additional routes starting next week, it is likely that bus and vendor transportation will not operate on the exact schedule we have been used to over the past two months while traditional calendar schools were on summer break. Some reminders:

  • Please be at your bus stop early both in the morning and afternoon over the next two weeks.
  • Arrival and departure times have been updated for each route and stop. Please review the updates to ensure you know when your child needs to be at their stop in the morning and when you can expect them to be dropped off in the afternoon. You can also find this information in your child’s Home Base/PowerSchool account.
  • Download the Here Comes the Bus app to track your child’s bus in real time. More information about the app, and for directions to sign up go here.
    • To sign up for the app you will need your child’s student ID and the district code: 67500
  • Transportation updates are posted each morning and afternoon on the WCPSS transportation website. Access updates for Parkside here.

We appreciate your ongoing support and understanding. Should you have any questions or concerns about school transportation, please don't hesitate to let us know or you can reach out to the transportation department directly at 919-805-3030 or fill out the comments/concerns page found here.
