Bus Transportation Registration

Bus registration for the 2024-2025 school year

    Transportation-eligible families were asked to register for bus service for the 2024-2025 school year. Registration is now closed and 79% of eligible families responded, with 97% of those who responded opting in to receive bus service. To streamline bus route planning, the Office of Student Transportation assumes eligible students whose parents/guardians did not register them will require bus service and will include them accordingly.

Parents/guardians whose children are eligible for bus transportation are asked to register to receive bus service each year. Families whose students have an Individualized Education Program (IEP) or a Section 504 plan that includes transportation do not need to register.

The transportation registration process is completed online via HCPSS Connect Synergy and must be done for each child eligible for bus service.

Bus Transportation Eligibility

To be eligible for bus service, your child’s home address must be outside of a school’s walk zones. Verify address eligibility by:

  1. Going to the HCPSS School Attendance Area Locator
  2. Check the white box near the bottom of the page to agree to the terms and conditions
  3. Enter an address in the white search box near the top left corner of the map

Once the address is found, a window will appear that will indicate either bus or walk for each school. Only those addresses that show bus are eligible for transportation service, with the exception of students whose IEP or 504 includes transportation and are eligible regardless of home address.

The attendance area locator is marked for the 2023-2024 school year. There are no anticipated changes for the 2024-2025 school year and eligibility will remain the same.

Please note! The attendance area locator also includes a link for the bus stop locator, which takes users to the HCPSS Transportation page. From there, users may select the online bus locator. The bus number, stop and time information found there and/or in HCPSS Connect Synergy only applies to the current school year. Bus stop information for the following school year will be available in August prior to the start of the school year.
