Parents should check for new bus stops frequently. Newly established bus stops could take 3 - 5 days.  Bus pick-up and drop-off times are approximate due to changes in traffic patterns and ridership.

WELCOME to the Atlanta Public Schools Transportation Department website.  The mission of the APS Transportation Department is to provide a safe and reliable means of transportation for Atlanta Public Schools students to and from school as well as extra-curricular school activities.



With the start of each school year, Atlanta Public Schools continually seeks opportunities to improve our Day One process.  Our new bell schedule allows for equitable, on-time arrival of all students in the district.  This schedule is expected to increase breakfast participation, shorten ride times for special needs students and improve student safety.  Consistent arrival times directly impact student achievement; in order to accomplish these goals without changing the bus schedules, the district would have been required to add 50 buses and drivers.  While elementary school start times did not change, some students may experience earlier bus pick-up times in order to maintain our district wide transportation schedule.
