Changes Coming to School Bus Routes

"There are fewer bus stops, and more children will be walking to school as Duval County is implementing some major changes in bus transportation."

"On Tuesday, the district's call center began fielding questions from parents about bus routes and bus stops."

"This year the major change is the elimination of bus stops. Now transportation is provided only if a child lives more than two miles from their school. In the past, the district's cutoff was 1.5 miles."

"The district says the elimination of some bus stops this year will impact about 7,000 children. Transportation changes are expected to save taxpayers $5 million a year."
