The telephone number for the Atlanta Public Schools’ Transportation Office is 404-802-5500. Use this number if you have any concerns about bus transportation.
The transportation department of Atlanta Public Schools configures bus routes based on maximum occupancy. Our buses become over-crowded very quickly when children bring friends home that normally ride a different bus, walk, or carpool home. Students will not be allowed to bring friends home on the bus – absolutely no exceptions.
- At both campuses, morning buses are unloaded in the front drive of the school beginning at 7:30am and students proceed directly to their Homeroom class.
- Bus dismissal begins at 2:30pm at both campuses. Due to the large number of buses, students are loaded for afternoon dismissal in groups.
- At both campuses, teachers escort students to the bus each afternoon.
- Every morning and every afternoon one of the regular buses will also serve as a “shuttle” to get students from one campus to the other. The morning shuttles leave promptly from each campus at 7:30am. The afternoon shuttles leave promptly from each campus at 2:30pm. Any student needing to ride the shuttle does NOT need to know the bus number, they need only to send in a change of transportation indicating “Shuttle”. The designated Shuttle buses are:
- Bus 560 is the Shuttle from MC to PC
- Bus 585 is the Shuttle from PC to MC
- All students will have a backpack tag attached to their book bags that will identify their name, grade, and afterschool mode of transportation, which includes the bus number, if applicable.
- Students must send in a Change of Transportation signed by a parent for any change to their regular mode of transportation (as identified with their teacher at the beginning of the school year).
