School Bus

Bus schedules are available in The Hub (via ParentVUE and StudentVUE). Bus route information can change in the beginning of the school year due to student enrollment, and The Hub offers parents and students the ability to receive the most up-to-date bus information. Check for any changes to your students’ bus information the night before during these first few weeks of school.

Bus schedules will not be emailed to parents/guardians, and due to security reasons, we will not post bus routes to our website.

The Here Comes the Bus app is an additional resource to view real-time map locations for your student's buses and get push-notifications when the bus is close. Download the app and then sign up for an account using the School Division code, 76348. Additional sign-up instructions are available on the Here Comes the Bus webpage. On the first day of school, Monday, August 23, 2021, more than 800 school buses will be on the roads in Prince William County as early as 5:30 a.m. to pick up more than 62,000 students and travel a total of 56,000 miles. As a reminder, masks are required on school buses by riders and drivers per current federal requirement. School Division staff work hard to ensure the safety of students on buses, but their safety also depends largely on the willingness of motorists to follow laws concerning school buses.

Motorists are reminded to obey flashing yellow lights in school zones. School zone lights were turned off at most schools in the county during the summer. By law, motorists must stop when a school bus is stopped with its red lights blinking and stop sign extended, except when the bus is on the opposite side of a median strip. Motorists must also stop if the bus is loading or unloading children and the signal devices are not functioning properly. Passing a stopped school bus is considered reckless driving. This is a misdemeanor in Virginia; violators face fines of up to $2,500 and jail time, as well as six points on their driving record.
