School system sponsors bus hotline for parents, students


Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) is sponsoring a bus hotline for parents to call with questions about school bus routes. Call 301-932-6655 to access the hotline. The hotline is available Aug. 21-22 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Aug. 25-26 from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Parents can access bus routes through the School Locator feature available on the CCPS website. School Locator is designed to allow the public to enter an address and see which three schools – elementary, middle and high – an address is zoned for. It also indicates if the address is eligible for bus transportation to a particular school, what the bus number is and where the closest bus stop to the address is located.

Bus routes on School Locator for the 2014-15 school year will be available on Friday, Aug. 8.

School Locator can be accessed at www.ccboe.com. Select School Locator from the Quick Links section of the home page, and then choose the first link, School Locator (Bus Information) located on the right-side menu. School Locator uses mapping data from the county and filters it by the system’s current school zones.

Additionally, bus stops within established subdivisions are permanently placed at specific locations to ensure consistency and equity among riders and will not be changed. Buses may run later than normal during the first week of school to adjust for changes in routes and/or established stops.

For more information about bus routes, contact your child’s school, or the transportation department at ccpstransportation@ccboe.com or 301-934-7262.
