Student Transportation and School Bus Information
Through the City of Charlottesville’s Pupil Transportation Department, our community provides school bus service for students who live in the City. We offer separate runs for three-year-olds, elementary students, students in grades 5-8, and high schoolers. We also provide separate services for identified students with special needs. Finally, to encourage our students to participate in extra-curricular activities, at all our schools we provide an after-school “activities” bus that returns students home after clubs or sports practices. (CHS offers an activities bus at two different times.)
In August 2017, we will temporarily post bus routes. Bus routes will also be available at open houses on August 21. After that, personalized and school-wide bus information will be posted to students’ PowerSchool accounts. To learn more about opening your parent account, click here.
Coming soon…. The City of Charlottesville Pupil Transportation Department is hoping to offer an app for your phones that will give you information about your child’s progress on the bus. When the app is ready, we will let parents know of its availability.
Private Rentals of School Buses
After Fall 2017, we will no longer be offering bus service for weddings and other public events. Charter service will only be available to our long-time regular business partners.
The City of Charlottesville Pupil Transportation Department operates school bus service in Charlottesville. The City works in close contact with the schools’ assistant superintendent for administrative services.
