What Bus Do I Ride?

Type in your address and we can tell you your bus stop, number, pick up and drop off times and route.

We've made some changes to bus stop locations, numbers and arrival/drop off times. Our goal is to get students to school a little earlier so they have time to eat breakfast. 

To find out what bus your child should ride, visit MyBusStop.aps.edu and type in your address.

Find your bus top, number, pick up and drop off times and route.

Who Can Ride the Bus?

  • Elementary school students whose home address is 1 mile or more from school
  • Middle school students whose home address is 1.5 miles or more from school
  • High school students whose home address is 2 or more miles from school
  • APS doesn’t provide school bus transportation for transfer students.

Who Should I Call? Bus 2

Is your child’s bus late? Not sure where to catch the bus? Do you have concerns about your child’s safety? Questions or complaints about service?

Call the APS Student Transportation Office at 880-3989. During peak times, the office receives a high volume of calls. Thanks for your patience.

If this is an emergency (such as an accident, dangerous situation, missing child), call APS Police at 243-7712.

It helps to know your child’s bus number as well as the bus stop location.
