Transportation Eligibility

Transportation Zone Map.pdf

CMS  will provide transportation services for eligible  students  to and from their residence address. It is important that you maintain an accurate residence address for every student with the attending school. Address changes are only processed at your assigned school.

If you choose to attend your original lottery assigned school and it is not in your zone, you will not receive transportation. If you change your address after your assignment, you have the option of attending your new home school or your original lottery assigned school. However, if you choose to attend your lottery assigned school and it is not the home school for your new address, you will not receive transportation.

Please note: Conditions such as grandfathered students and/or students who may have relocated from one address to another may establish different transportation eligibility criteria. Individual student situations may vary and not all conditions may apply to the above general statement.

If you have specific questions, please contact your school administrator.



Please complete this form to notify the CMS Transportation Department if your student is currently enrolled and you wish to request transportation or to notify us of a change to your child's AM or PM ride status for the 2018-2019 school year. Please note that if the request is already prefilled "Yes" for the service(s) needed, no request needs to be submitted an d you can click 'No Changes'.

Here Comes the Bus


(Due to the number of different program times, the app will not be in place for families participating in summer academic opportunities. The Here Comes the Bus App will be available for families to utilize in late September; CMS will notify families when the app becomes available.)

 

CMS families with children that ride a school bus are now able to use a free bus tracking system! Families can download the app and have access to real-time location of their child's bus on a map as well as scheduled and actual arrival times at their assigned stop and school.

 

Here Comes the Bus is a school bus tracking app that can simplify morning and afternoon routines for parents and students by giving them real-time bus location and text or email notification alerts to help get them to the bus stop on time. Here Comes the Bus utilizes our GPS data and an easy to use customizable map that works on a computer, tablet or smartphone.

Helpful Tips:


  • You must have your child's unique student identification number to set up the app.  Due to privacy guidelines, Transportation staff will NOT be able to provide this number to you! If you need your student's identification number, you must contact the school.
  • When entering your child's last name on the "Here comes the Bus" app, make sure you spell it EXACTLY as it appears on your child's report cards, bus stop information, etc.  If you have a hyphen in the name, make sure you include it.  Only enter the first fourteen (14) characters of your child's last name.  For example, if your child's last name is GETON-THEBUSTODAY, you will enter GETON-THEBUSTO in the last name field.
  • The bus stop associated with your child for morning and afternoon bus service is the location you can draw the radius around; the app does not track afterschool, athletics, or any other transportation we provide.
  • Please note that no bus tracking service is 100% accurate; DO NOT assume the bus isn't coming just because the app didn't notify you! If in doubt about the arrival of a bus, please call the transportation area that supports your school.
  • Sometimes we make bus substitutions and this can affect the accuracy of the Here Comes the Bus App. When a bus substitution is made, the Here Comes The Bus app may not work.
