WCPSS offers new transportation website for parents, students

Posted: Updated:
CARY, N.C. -

Wake County parents can access a new transportation website as a one-stop resource for bus routes, frequently asked question and customer service.

Brochures are being mailed to students and parents this week alerting them to visit the new online resource.

Parents are encouraged to go online to locate their child's bus route and stop before school begins on Aug. 26.

Old bus routes used in previous years are outdated, and bus schedules are no longer being mailed to homes.

School officials also asked that parents and students be patient during the first couple of weeks of school as bus routes stabilize.

Last school year, many Wake County parents became frustrated over mix-ups with bus routes and pick-up times.

It's an issue that has received intense attention in North Carolina, with 13 children being hit, and killed, at bus stops since 1999. One survey on March 26 of this year recorded 429 times where a driver roared past a stopped school bus in Wake County alone. In Durham County, there were 89 violations that same day and Cumberland County had a whopping 210. Johnston Coun...
