Mission of the Transportation Department

The mission of the North Ridgeville City Schools Transportation Department is to provide a safe, reliable, and efficient method of transportation to and from school for each of the students under our care.

New School Year Busing Information

During the first week of school, we ask you to please be patient with the transportation department as we work hard to get your child to and from school safely. In the PM the buses, will be running late for the first few days until students learn where their bus is parked and driver's checking attendance to make sure they have the correct students on board. 

Please have your child standing at the bus stop 5 minutes before the bus is scheduled to arrive at the designated place of safety which is required by law and our policy. Waiting in a vehicle is strictly prohibited regardless of in climate weather. (About 20 steps from the roadway in the driveway at a house stop or if on a corner the intersecting sidewalk, your driver will assign the best appropriate place). Your driver will use a hand signal for right or left side (pick up and drop off) to indicate when your child should check in both directions to make sure it is safe, clear of traffic or pedestrians to proceed to or discharge from the bus.  It is required by law and our policy for your child to go the designated place of safety once dropped off at the bus stop and to stay there until the bus leaves the stop location so that the driver can account for where your child is outside of the bus at all times for their safety.  We give an estimated drop off time due to we cannot guarantee how many children will be riding the bus home each day and current traffic conditions.  If you have any questions or if you find this information to be incorrect please don't hesitate to email or call our office at (440) 327-4422.

Changing existing transportation/adding transportation for current students

If your address has changed, or you are an existing student that would like to have transportation (and is eligible for transportation) please fill out the Change of Address form located in the Parent Portal. For questions, contact Transportation Supervisor Tammy Butler or Administrative Assistant Melissa Phelps.

                                                                    Variance Form 

If your student requires pickup or drop off (5 days per week) to a location that is different from the current home address, a variance form needs to be completed. The variance form can be found through the Parent Portal. Remember this is a permanent change to the pick up or drop off location (such as a babysitter or daycare) and cannot change from week to week. 

For questions on bus routes, please contact (440)-327-4422. Please note it is suggested that parents who are calling about non-emergency items wait until the hours of 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. as this is when bus routes are not taking place.
