Transportation For Children
  • If your child is registered in his/her school of attendance with the correct address information for the upcoming school year, and is eligible for transportation, bus pass mailers were mailed out August 6, 2019. Eligible students registering after the 3rd week of July may not receive a bus card mailer for the upcoming year.

    Get ready for the back-to-school season with these School Bus Safety Tips for Students, Parents and Commuters!

    Slow Down/Expect Delays:

    • Expect school bus delays the first few weeks of school due to traffic congestion around campuses, schools regulating dismissals, and students becoming familiar with their bus drivers.
    • Back to School Means Sharing the Road with additional traffic on roads, in school zones and on school campuses. 

    School Zones

    • In a school zone when flashers are blinking, stop and yield to pedestrians crossing the crosswalk and pay attention to crossing guards.

    Buses on the Road:

    • If you're driving behind a bus, allow a greater following distance than if you were driving behind a car. It will give you more time to stop once the yellow lights start flashing.
    • It is illegal to pass a school bus that is stopped to load or unload children.
    • Never pass a bus from behind – or from either direction if you're on an undivided road – if it is stopped to load or unload children.
    • If the yellow or red lights are flashing and the stop arm is extended, traffic must stop.
    • Students should arrive at the bus stop 10 minutes early

    Requesting Changes/Adding Bus Stop Locations:

    • Major bus stop changes will be considered after September 2nd so routes can be stabilized and leveled. 
    • Many students are not enrolled until after school starts; therefore Student Transportation & Fleet Services cannot get a true analysis of the need until after that time.
    • Parents are encouraged to contact the Transportation Liaison at their child’s school for bus stop/route information.

Terminals

  • There are just over 1,000 school buses used by Broward District Schools on daily routes, transporting more than 73,000 students to and from school, and driving more than 16 million miles to 234 locations.  This department collaborates with all schools to communicate transportation information to students and parents.

    Broward School Board Policy 5300 allows for a student otherwise not eligible for transportation to ride if there is a seat available on route (s) that serve the school. After October 1 of each school year “Empty Seat Applications” are processed through the student’s school of attendance.
