Citywide Programs Bus Transportation

Students enrolled in the school division’s Citywide Academy and Advanced Academic, or Gifted Programs, Charter School, Old Donation School, and Renaissance Academy have access to the Citywide Express Bus Route System as a means of transportation to and from school.

The Office of Transportation Services is dedicated to providing safe, reliable, energy efficient and cost-saving services to our students and families. For your convenience, an overview of the citywide express bus route system is included on this page.

School Bus information for all citywide program/school students will be available through each student’s ParentVue account. Only students who have registered for transportation through their school will be assigned to a bus and bus stop. This easy-to-use system provides parents and students with their assigned Bus Number, the Bus Stop Location, distance from your residence to the bus stop, and the approximate arrival time of the bus at the bus stop.

Important Reminder: All school bus stop arrival times for citywide schools and programs are subject to change significantly due to traffic or the enrollment of new students. ParentVue will provide the most up to date bus route information available. Check back often and please have your student at the bus stop at least 10 minutes prior to the scheduled arrival time.
