Find My Bus Route

All bus stop information is subject to change and is updated daily to show current, bus routes, bus stops, and stop times. Please check for changes frequently.

All bus stops are assigned to be walking distance from your home, with the exception of a community bus stop. Community bus stops are based on magnet/alternate education/program schools and are designed to bring as many students as possible to one location to transport the children to and from school.

The Transportation Department does not employ crossing guards. You may contact your local county/city office to request a crossing guard at bus stops that may be located near a busy intersection.

The Transportation Department is not able to make address changes.

Please update your address with your student’s school or with the student assignment office. Please allow up to 3-5 business days for a route to assigned once we receive your address change.

About Us

St. Lucie School Transportation runs the 75th largest fleet in the nation. We serve the district from two terminals, North County Compound (NCC) and South County Compound (SCC). Each terminal has supervisory staff and dispatchers covering each shift and routing personnel to serve parents and students.

All buses are equipped with two way radios and are monitored by on board cameras and satellite tracking devices. Bus routing is accomplished through a computer database with a map based road network designed to optimize bus efficiency. Bus stops are located to be in the safest, most central position for all eligible riders. All stops are located according to state and district guidelines with safety, timeliness and efficiency in mind.

Yellow school bus transportation is the safest, most economical and friendly method of transporting Florida’s school children. Every day Florida parents send almost a million of their children to a local school bus stop… with peace of mind.

School bus drivers are required by law to receive more training than any other driver in the State. A School bus driver receives training in student management and first aid. A school bus driver’s background is checked by the Department of Justice and/or the FBI prior to receiving a license to drive a school bus.

School bus stops are strictly regulated by laws. Procedures to load and unload the students are also regulated by laws.

School bus drivers are regulated by hundreds of additional laws governing the operation and maintenance of a school bus. School Bus drivers receive so much original and continual training, that a school bus driver can legally drive any bus on the roadways.

The accident and injury rate of yellow school buses in the United States makes the Yellow School Bus the safest ride in America!


All of our school bus drivers under go multiple trainings and certifications each year to ensure that the children of our community are transported each and every day with care, professionalism and the knowledge to help promote their individual school bus experience.

Both drivers and aides are certified in the following:

  • State of Florida Basic School Bus Curriculum

  • On the Road Training by Certified Department of Education Instructors
  • C.H.A.M.P.S – Strategies to promote positive student behavior

times safer than your family automobile
times safer than flying
times safer than a passenger train
times safer than transit or intercity buses

The safety of our children is the number one priority of the SLPS Transportation Department. Today’s children contend with morning rush hour traffic, few sidewalks, and motorists with their minds elsewhere and their phones in their hands. Parents are the frontline protectors of their children.

  • Parents are encouraged to walk with or transport their children to and from bus stops.
  • Parents must ensure that their children arrive at the bus stop in the morning at least ten minutes prior to pick up time.
  • Parents are responsible for their children’s safety and well-being on the way to and from the bus stops and while at the bus stops.
  • Parents are responsible for the proper conduct of their children on the way and from and while at the bus stops.
  • Parents are responsible for the conduct of their children, along with district personnel while the children are aboard the bus.
  • Parents are expected to cooperate with district personnel regarding the safe and effective transport of their children.
  • Parents are encouraged to contact the school or the transportation department when they observe unsafe conditions.
  • Every child should have a responsible parent or designated adult to supervise bus stop safety.

Reporting Unsafe Bus Behavior

When parents are negligent in this area, the Transportation Department depends on the community and its citizens to report safety concerns such as:

  • Playing or sitting in the street
  • Misbehavior or vandalism
  • Causing neighborhood disturbances
  • New construction beginning in the area of the stop
  • Unsafe drivers in the area of the stop
  • Illicit or illegal activities
  • Unattached adults lingering near the area of the stop
  • Any concern related to the safety of students

Citizens may contact the appropriate law enforcement agency if a crime is being committed or contact to assist in keeping all children safe at school bus stops.
