HCPS Transportation Request
**** BUS STOP REQUESTS MAY TAKE UP TO TWO WEEKS FOR PROCESSING. PARENTS OF PRE-K THROUGH 2ND GRADE STUDENTS MUST ACCOMPANY THEIR STUDENT TO AND FROM THE BUS STOP. *** Requests received after 1/5/21 may experience delays in processing.
This a request for a permanent change to a bus stop assignment. Please contact your school for a bus pass if you are requesting a temporary change in bus stop assignment. Changes will only apply school bus services within your child's school attendance zone. All requests for morning or evening changes must be for five days per week. We can accommodate a request if there is space available on an existing bus route.
Routes and bus stops are determined prior to the beginning of each new school year by the Department of Transportation. School bus stops are generally assigned to locations central to where students are coming from. The Department of Transportation attempts to minimize student walk distances from bus stops while maximizing bus use. Some bus stop locations will require students to walk in residential areas along and across streets, with or without sidewalks. Elementary student’s distances to bus stops can extend up to .3 of a mile. Secondary student’s distances to bus stops can extend up to .5 of mile.
The department cannot consider factors that are associated with individual family and/or parental situations. Such concerns are expected to be resolved by the family, parent, or guardian. Examples:
¨ Parent not being able to see child walking to bus stop and/or waiting at bus stop.
¨ Neighborhood feuds or conflicts with nearby residents.
¨ Change in parent's work schedule.
¨ Parent not able to walk to bus stop with child because of other obligations
*Once your bus stop change request has been received it will be reviewed by the transportation department. You will be notified of the approval or non-approval of your request within two weeks of submission. YOU MAY NEED TO PROVIDE TRANSPORTATION TO AND FROM SCHOOL UNTIL A NEW STOP HAS BEEN ADDED. Please note that at the beginning of the school year, the response time maybe greater due to the number of requests during start of the school year.
This form is to be completed and/or signed by a parent or guardian. Bus Seating is limited. Requests received after 1/5/21 may experience a delay in processing.
