Students who live less than two miles from a school will not be eligible for transportation based on the State Board of Education rule 6A 3.001(3). The 2-mile radius rule is as follows: "A reasonable walking distance for any student who is not otherwise eligible for transportation pursuant to Section 1011.68, Florida Statutes, is any distance not more than two (2) miles between the home and school or one and one-half (1 1/2) miles between the home and the assigned bus stop."
Transportation will be provided to students that live closer than the 2-mile radius based on the state criteria for Hazardous Conditions. The District Safety Office verifies the need for busing due to safety hazards. Options that include transportation for each area are located on the district (website.)
Safe Routes to School
Safe Routes to School is a national, state, and county-wide effort to promote walking and biking to school and making walking to school, safe, popular, and fun for families. In an effort to decrease traffic congestion around schools and increase safety, academic performance and wellness for HCPS students, the Transportation Department has collaborated with Hillsborough MPO School Transportation Work Group (STWG) chaired by Board member Cindy Stuart.
