  • What factors are considered for assigning bus stops?
    Safety is the number one consideration. Other considerations include: Paved public roadways that are wide enough to be accessible to a school bus Speed and traffic flow Corners are preferred as they typically have traffic control (stop signs, etc) and crosswalks Ample visibility for the driver to safely stop the bus. If there is not ample visibility, a "school bus stop ahead" sign will be placed to give other drivers a warning that a school bus may be stopped ahead Pickup students on the right side of the bus whenever possible Avoid unsafe locations The overall safety of each school bus stop is evaluated to ensure it is a safe place for students to wait for the bus and be dropped off. Bus routes are evaluated every year. Safe walking routes are evaluated every 2 years or as needed. We also encourage parents and guardians to provide age appropriate supervision at their bus stops.
