The bus goes right by my house. Why can't it stop here?

School bus stops are placed in central locations to shorten route length and travel times. The Transportation Department makes every effort to see that these stops are safe and have appropriate walking routes to them. In many cases a bus will stop at a front door if there is no appropriate stop within a reasonable distance. School bus stops must be placed at least five hundred feet apart. Request for changes in routes or stops must be submitted in writing to the transportation office.
