School bus stops are evaluated and determined annually by the South-Western City School District Transportation Department. Stops are then submitted to and approved by the Board of Education.
Many factors are considered when creating bus stop locations and bus routes. The goal is to create the safest and most efficient locations while maintaining a high level of convenience for students.
In residential areas, whenever possible, elementary and intermediate stops are located within 1,750 feet of a student’s residence and 2,650 feet of a middle and high school student’s residence.
Established walk areas are no more than one mile for elementary school students, one and a half miles for intermediate school students, and two miles for middle and high school students.
If you feel your child’s bus stop does not fit within these guidelines, please fill out and submit the form below via e-mail to [email protected]
or by fax (614) 277-3591.
Your issue will be evaluated and responded to as quickly as possible.
