Bus routes will be available here on this website for a limited time only, with the exception of unique circumstances. New Hanover County Schools operate over 600 runs each school day. Due to numerous changes in routes, stops, riders and times throughout the school year, please download the Edulog Parent Portal bus tracking phone application. Once your child is registered, it will have the most up-to-date route information. If your child is in A Section, you will only see transportation details scheduled for Monday and Tuesday. If your child is in B Section, you will only see transportation details scheduled for Thursday and Friday.
Each school will have 2 sets of routes: One for A Section (Monday/Tuesday) and one for B Section (Thursday/Friday). If your child goes to school all 4 days, you will need to review both routes as they may not be the same for A Section and B Section.
Also, some riders from different schools will be on consolidated buses. Examples are Gregory/Snipes/Freeman/DC Virgo/Lake Forest may ride the same bus depending on residence locations.

In the interest of student safety, NHCS prohibits the discharge of unattended students who are Pre-Kindergarten through 2nd Grade. ALL Pre-Kindergarten students must be met at their stop by a parent/legal guardian. If a parent/legal guardian wishes their Kindergarten through 2nd Grade student to be permitted to depart the school bus without the parent/legal guardian present, they must complete and submit a “Parent/Legal Guardian Permission Form For Unattended Bus Stop Drop-Off” which can be obtained from the school office. In the event there is no parent/legal guardian present at a student’s bus stop, Pre-Kindergarten or Kindergarten through 2nd Grade students, without prior authorization for unattended discharge, will be returned to school and released to school personnel.
Students are assigned to the bus stop nearest to their home address. Students are not permitted to use any bus stop other than the one to which they are assigned. Exceptions must be approved by the Transportation Department.
