Bedford's School Bus Routes for the 2017-2018 School Year are posted here and on each school's web page. The routes list the stop locations and the estimated start time. We recommend that you arrive at your stop 10 minutes to 15 minutes before the route start time for the first few weeks of school. After the third week traffic and route times will become more consistent.
Most routes will be similar to prior years; however, there will be some changes in stop locations and in bus numbers. Locate the stop nearest to your home address and that will be the bus route number you will use. There are stops that are on one route in the morning and another route in the afternoon. Please make note of that where it impacts you. Also, please note that the bus route number you rode last year may not be the same as this year. These lists may be updated from time to time, so please check this site for any updates. As always we will work on refining the routes and pick up times until we find the best timetable for all schools. We ask parents and students to be patient until we have achieved that goal.
The rules and expectations for all students riding the bus are outlined in each school's student handbook. Learning, understanding and following these rules and expectations will make for a safer and more pleasant bus ride and school year.
