In the AM: In the morning students can ride a bus to their zoned neighborhood high school (click here for local routes), and then take a “shuttle” bus to Douglas Anderson. Parents can also drop students at the high schools and students can choose to ride the shuttle bus only. Shuttle buses leave from the high schools between 7:00 and 7:15. Please click here for the Shuttle Bus Schedule to DA and other magnet schools.
* AM Exception: Students who live in the Fletcher High attendance area: There are buses (north beach area and south beach area) that pick up students at public locations and go to Fletcher Middle to catch shuttles. From there, students take a shuttle bus to DA. Students who live in the Fletcher High School attendance area do not shuttle from Fletcher H.S. in the morning. Parents may drop students at Fletcher Middle to ride the shuttle bus. AM shuttle buses leave Fletcher MS at 7:00 AM.
In the PM: In the afternoon, the routes are “Express Routes” with limited bus stops at public locations, at or near schools. The one mile to a bus stop policy does not apply. Parents are responsible for getting students to and from the bus stops. Please click here for the Bus Schedules from DA.
* PM Exception: Students who live in the far north and beaches areas. Students living on the far north side shuttle to First Coast High School and students who live in the beaches area shuttle to Fletcher High School. There are buses from each location to neighborhood “express stops”. These shuttles are included on the PM routes listed above.
Activity Bus Routes: There are five after-school activity bus routes that leave Douglas Anderson at 5:10 every day except Wednesdays. These routes are not designed to service individual neighborhoods, but access generally accessible locations such as schools. Please click here for the after-school activity routes.
