Transportation
  • Welcome!  School Bus Routes are now available for 2018-2019 - please see the left hand menu for routes and times. Bus routes are subject to change for the 2018-2019 school year.

    Duval County Public Schools is committed to the delivery of safe, reliable, efficient and cost effective transportation services to the district community.  A contracted fleet of more than 850 buses transports approximately 47,000 students annually.  According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, the school bus is the safest vehicle on the road, and a student is much safer taking a bus to and from school than traveling by car. 

    Transportation is provided to students who live more than 1.5 miles from the school they attend.  The distance to a bus stop can be up to one mile with exceptions for students participating in choice, special programs, alternative programs, and/or those with exception education requirements.  Secondary magnet students will have “Express Routes” with stops made primarily at schools, near schools, or approved public locations which may be more than a mile away.
