Students are eligible for transportation services if they reside within the attendance zone of ACS and are beyond the Parental Responsibility Zone (PRZ). These zones are established in conjunction with Arlington Community Schools Policy. This includes students who reside a minimum of 1.5 miles from the school for Elementary and 2.0 miles for Middle and High School or those living in identified areas that do not allow for a safe walk to school.
Bus Number Update
To reduce confusion regarding bus numbers and routes, the Transportation Department asks all riders to pay attention to the printed sign on the second bus window and not the number that may be on the side of the bus. While the physical bus may change from day to day, the printed sign on the bus window will remain constant and will always indicate which bus your child is riding. In addition to contacting the school with specific Transportation questions/concerns, you may also contact Durham directly at 901.861.0256.
Parents (as well as school staff) should call Durham directly at 901.861.0256 if a bus is late or has not arrived. To report bus issues to ACS, please call 901.389.2497.
