  • Closing and Delays

  • Key Dates and Information

    • The deadline for transportation requests is July 31st. Transportation request forms submitted after August 1st will receive the closest point of pick up or a depot stop location for a temporary bus stop.
    • Statewide Transportation accepts open enrollment and new transportation requests throughout the school year. The July 31 deadline is only enforced if you require service on the first day of school.
    • Parents who are new to the statewide system will receive a letter with information about the system before the start of school.
    • In order to keep ride times within reasonable limits, bus stops that are used infrequently (less than once a week) will be deactivated, and students will be assigned to the nearest active bus stop.
    • The historic transportation regions are still in place, which means that transportation will only be provided within regional boundaries.
    For questions and additional information contact the statewide system manager’s office.
