Assigned Bus Numbers - Updated February 16, 2024

The buttons below connect to a spreadsheet that list routed addresses, bus numbers for pick up and drop off. Keep in mind, if a community stop is utilized, your home address may be listed but your pick up location may be at a nearby crossroads. You should click on your school and then do a search (Ctrl+F) to look up your home address. Special transportation routes will not be posted.

Important note - we have removed estimated times. Drivers may continue to make changes to their times as routes become more stable based on ridership. The driver will communicate with families as they make changes to pick up or drop off times. We are also breaking up longer routes and consolidating others to improve performance times. Students will receive a memo and an automated call explain the changes and estimated pick up times.

**Please reference the bus departure log below to know when your child's bus has left from the school so you can anticipate when it will be at your stop. You can also review steps to activate your Stop Finder application.

Chase Vans

The vans are driven by licensed, CCPS staff. These vans do not pick up students who miss the bus as a result of their own tardiness.

Conduct on Buses

Follow the link below to view school board approved policies on student conduct while riding a CCPS vehicle. The safety of students and staff while operating a vehicle is paramount. Students should follow the rules to ensure the driver is not distracted by behavior or other issues. These guidelines are included in the Student Code of Conduct and should be reviewed by parents and students alike.

Walk zones and walking to assigned bus stops

Following state guidance, Culpeper County Public Schools utilizes walk zones. These zones may extend to around a quarter of a mile from the school's property. Schools that have walk zones include: Culpeper High School, Culpeper Middle School, Sycamore Park Elementary School, Farmington Elementary School, and Yowell Elementary School. Though state guidance allows up to a mile for elementary and a mile and half for secondary, Culpeper Transportation has worked to identify areas where students can transit safely and quickly to school. In addition, we have invested in paving some pathways with security to include additional lighting, cameras, and physical security during arrival and dismissal times. Please encourage your student to dress appropriately for the weather.

CCPS does not assess all possible routes within the walk zone. We also do not supervise every route a student may select to take, or guarantee the safety. However, Culpeper Transportation will review walking routes for unusual hazards upon request and will collaborate with local organizations and HOA's in the development of pedestrian and biking route enhancements where appropriate.

Walking to the Bus Stop

In addition, students who are assigned a bus may be required to walk up to a quarter of a mile or more to the bus stop depending on their location. Private driveways and unusual pick up locations are an example of this. In order to improve efficiency, CCPS transportation utilizes community or common bus stops wherever practical.
