Designated non-transportation areas are established by the HCPSS Office of Student Transportation in accordance with Board of Education Policy 5200 Student Transportation. The approved distances are utilized as the starting point for the establishment of these areas for each school. The route to school that falls within this distance must meet a reasonable level of safety. This involves the evaluation of adequate sight distance, suitable pathways and crossings, and even considers long-term construction projects. Failure to meet these parameters will result in bus transportation being provided.
If you believe that a non-transported area is unsafe, please share your concerns with the Transportation Area Manager for that school.
Please visit the HCPSS website for more information if you live in a non-transportation area but believe your child should receive bus transportation.
