Fall 2012 Bus Routes
Welcome to the 2012-2013 school year! Again this year you will be receiving route information from your child’s building, along with their building and teacher assignments. The letters will work in conjunction with this booklet and are the most current routes as of August 3, 2012. All routes and times are subject to change as enrollment changes are received.
PLEASE NOTE:Times are approximate and are subject to change. Please be patient, especially for the first couple of weeks of school. Pick-up times could vary as much as 15 minutes, especially early in the year. Times will improve and changes will be implemented if needed.
For your convenience the transportation hot line is updated twice a day. The line will inform you of any school closings, school delays, road closures, or late buses during the school year.
Transportation Hot Line:
(734) 484-7000 ext. 6041
Finding Your Bus
To find your child’s bus pick-up location, find the section that applies to your student(s) -- Secondary, Elementary, Childs -- and then find the number and address nearest your home. Because many buses may pick up on the same road, please check the list carefully. You will find the approximate pick-up time by the address nearest your home.
For your child’s safety, a parent/guardian or appointed emergency contact person (must be on the emergency card) must be at the bus stop to pick up your kindergarten student every day.
Childcare Arrangement Forms
Childcare Arrangement Forms are available at the Transportation Department or in your child’s school office. Forms can be completed and/or dropped off at the Transportation Department between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. There could be up to a two (2) week delay in processing the forms at the start of the school year.
Bus Stop Change Request
Requests for a bus stop change can be made on a Concern/Complaint Form available in the Transportation Office. All requests will be researched and you will be notified of the results within thirty days of the request. Please be aware that all requests must meet the criteria for change and are not automatically honored.
