     To manage the current shortage, bus routes may be adjusted, resulting in new bus assignments, increased ride times and more students sharing bus routes.  Please check Infofinder to learn about potential changes to your child’s bus route.  For additional assistance, please use the Stop Finder app, the Transportation Resolution System or the transportation hotline at 301-952-6570 daily from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm.
