Is your child a JCPS bus rider?

Visit Bus Teller to see bus stop information.

Log into the Transportation Portal to find your bus stop information using the new Bus Teller platform. Please check Bus Teller daily to ensure you have the most up-to-date stop information.

Students must complete the Transportation Verification form to be assigned a bus stop. For families submitting forms after July 22, transportation is not guaranteed for the first few weeks of school.

If your child is eligible for JCPS transportation and you've recently moved, please also report your address change by using the Proof of Address Form OR call your child’s school. If you cannot show proof of new residence by July 22, please plan to provide transportation for the first 10 days of school.

Please note that Exceptional Child Education (ECE) students who have transportation as part of their Individual Education Program (IEP) and students who receive McKinney Vento Homeless Act services will get transportation services no matter what school they attend.

Transportation

In April 2024, the Jefferson County Board of Education approved a new transportation plan for the 2024-25 school year to help more students arrive on time.

Most magnet school students will no longer be eligible for JCPS transportation.

With a dramatic shortage of bus drivers and more routes than drivers, the board voted to cut JCPS transportation for students* who:

—Attend full magnet schools with the exception of Central and Western High Schools

—Attend magnet programs within a school

—Attend traditional schools

—Attend non-resides Academies of Louisville programs

That means students at several JCPS schools will no longer have access to bus transportation from JCPS.

Example

Transportation will be provided if your child attends Atherton High School, is enrolled in the IB Magnet Program, and lives in the Atherton High School Zone.

Transportation will NOT be provided if your child attends Atherton High School, is enrolled in the IB Magnet Program, and does NOT live in the Atherton High School Zone.

*The following groups of students will still get transportation regardless of the school they attend:

—Exceptional Child Education (ECE) students who have transportation as a part of their Individual Education Program (IEP).

—Students who are eligible to receive McKinney Vento Homeless Assistance Act services.
