Charles County Public Schools
TRANSPORTATION: Moving the Future
An essential element of the education process is the safe and efficient transportation of students as they travel between home and school. The success of this undertaking relies on the collective responsibility and efforts of drivers, students, families, schools, bus contractors, and CCPS Transportation. Together, we are moving the future of Charles County.

School Locator is linked to the CCPS website at https://infosharecharles.tripsparkhost.com/. Parents will need to enter their home address into School Locator to locate their child’s bus information. All Phase 2 parents should check the School Locator to confirm their child’s transportation arrangements as they may have changed. Directions on how to use School Locator are posted at https://www.ccboe.com/index.php/school-locator2.
Parents with bus stop concerns or who need to make changes to their child’s pick-up or drop-off locations for daycare needs (within their assigned school zone) should complete a bus change request form located on the CCPS transportation portal here. Users should scroll down to the bottom of the page to create a help form.
Bus information for all students – whether returning to school in person or remaining virtual for the remainder of the school year – is loaded into School Locator.
On the majority of CCPS buses, students will sit one per seat. Some routes may require a student to sit with another child. Transportation staff will monitor bus loads and adjust as needed. Any student riding a bus to and from school is required to wear a face mask at all times. Parents and students should practice social distancing at school bus stops. At times, school bus windows may be lowered to allow for additional ventilation.
Watch our Bus Safety video to learn more about how we have prepared our transportation system for the return to school.
