Transportation

More than 250 Sarasota County School District buses travel about 30,000 miles each day to transport over 18,000 students. 

Information about bus routes, frequently asked questions and safety reminders for motorists and students are included on these pages.

Transportation is provided to students in grades K-12 if they live more than two miles from school. Transportation may or may not be provided for students who live outside the attendance boundaries of the school they attend. 

Some students who attend special schools or magnet programs are served by bus stops in various parts of the county — such as a stop at a south county school for students attending a north county school.  

The safety of students is our highest priority. We take that responsibility very seriously.

Thank you for entrusting your children to us — in school and on the bus.
