ATTENTION PARENTS!

Please remember that unless your student's address information is current and accurate in the District's database, we cannot ensure he or she is scheduled for transportation on the right bus to the right location. Please get to your child's school IMMEDIATELY after changing your address or contact information. That information not only improves the safety of the transportation evolution, it also helps ensure your child receives the appropriate student services and that the District can reach you in the event of an emergency. If you have any questions about this or about any other student transportation matter, please drop us a line.  For your convenience, we've provided webforms on our website that will be directed to a staff member who will quickly respond to your question or concern.

Bus Stop Locator Tool: The Bus Stop Locator tool is now available by clicking HERE. Please be mindful that there will still be changes as we adjust routes and rosters to account for unexpected student riders.

Please note that since the Bus Stop Locator Tool logic is built on geographical references, it refers only to bus stop locations and times for students who reside in their school's attendance zone. Therefore, it does not pertain to students who attend school on a school choice approval or other students who attend school "out of zone" or "out of district."

 

Routes for schools with center-to-center (C2C) transportation can be downloaded via these links:

Note: Transportation service on board these buses is provided on a space available basis and must be requested by the parent/guardian and approved by the route manager in advance.

Transportation Accommodations

The Escambia County School District is one of the few its size in the State of Florida to permit special transportation accommodations to the extent that it does.  In authorizing these courtesy exceptions, however, the District is adamant about ensuring its parameters do not permit the accounting for students to be compromised.  The District transports 24,000 students on board 300 school buses twice each day, so keeping track of “special cases” requires careful planning and coordination.  In ANY case where a complete and accurate accounting for students is in doubt, the accommodation will not be approved.

 

A. Parents/guardians may request courtesy bus transportation on board an alternate bus or to an alternate bus stop by submitting Form 6.19 (Request for Alternate Bus/Bus Stop Service). Generally, these requests relate to after-school childcare needs. The request will be approved if there is space available on the bus. Only requests submitted by July 1 will be considered for approval in time for the start of the school year. Requests must be submitted each year. Additional conditions governing this service are articulated in School Board Rules 6.04(3), (4), and (5).

 

B. Parents/guardians of students who attend a school of choice or magnet school are responsible for providing transportation for their children to and from school. They are advised not to accept transfers to these schools unless they have a plan for transporting their children to and from school every day. Limited courtesy transportation service may be available on a first-come/first-served space available basis. Parents/guardians may request courtesy bus transportation by submitting Form 6.11 (Request for School Choice Transportation Service) or Form 6.18 (Request for Magnet School Transportation Service). Only requests submitted by July 1 will be considered for approval in time for the start of the school year. Requests must be submitted each year. Additional conditions governing this service are articulated in School Board Rules 6.04(6) and (7).

 

Other request forms may be found on the "Parent Resources" page.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: Since accommodations are provided on a space available basis, accommodations may be withdrawn at any time during the school year if students eligible for transportation on the bus need the seat space.
