Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) sponsors a bus line that parents can call with questions about school bus routes. Bus routes, route information, and pick-up and drop-off times will be loaded into School Locator, the map system used by CCPS, by Friday, August 20.
The hotline can be reached from August 26th to 27th from 8.30 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. and from August 30 to 31st from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call 301-932-6655 to access the hotline.
School Locator is available on the CCPS website at https://www.ccboe.com/index.php/school-locator2.
School Locator is designed to allow the public to enter an address and see which three schools – elementary, middle, and senior – have an address. It also indicates whether the address is suitable for bus transport to a particular school, the bus number for each route, and the location of the bus stop closest to the address.
The CCPS Transportation Department will be in direct contact with the families of students who require transportation with special needs before the first day of school.
Requests for changes to bus stops must be submitted online through the school system website at https://www.ccboe.com/transportation/.
Bus stops within established subdivisions are permanently placed in specific locations to ensure consistency and fairness among passengers. Buses can run later than normal during the first week of school to accommodate changes in routes and / or designated stops.
Every student who uses bus transport must wear a mask when driving on the bus.
School Locator uses map data from the county and filters it according to the system’s current school zones. For more information on bus routes, please visit https://www.ccboe.com/transportation/, contact your child’s school, or call the CCPS Transportation Department at 301-934-7262.
