Transportation Overview

  • For the safety of our students, families, and bus personnel, our bus routes will no longer be publicly posted.  Bus routes are made available via the PowerSchool Parent-Student Portal.  You will need login credentials to access the bus routes within PowerSchool.  If you have forgotten your login credentials, have never received them, or for students in grade K-2, please contact your child's school.  

    We ask that you support our safety efforts by not publishing any bus routes on a public site (social media, web pages, etc.).  

    Please note: bus stops and times are subject to change, especially at the beginning of a school year.  You do not have to call to register or sign your child up to ride a bus.  All students of TCS will be assigned a bus for their route. Each stop has a posted pickup time assigned; please have your student at that stop 10 minutes before the assigned pickup time. We ask that you support our safety efforts by not publishing bus route information on public sites (social media, websites, neighborhood blogs, etc.).

    The mission of TCS Transportation Department:

    The mission of the Trussville City Schools' Transportation Department is to support the academic day by providing safe, reliable, and efficient transportation services for the students of Trussville City Schools.

     We are committed to...

    • Operating buses that are safe, clean, and attractive.

    • Picking up and delivering students to their authorized destination on time and in an orderly manner.

    • Operating all buses in accordance with state laws, Board of Education, and guidelines established by the Transportation Coordinator.

    • Ensuring that all personnel who operate vehicles for pupil transportation are a positive influence on public relations.

    • Developing and enforcing rules and regulations for the efficient operations of buses as it relates to the safety of TCS transportation employees at all times.

    Quick Tips:

    We recommend having your child at the bus stop ten (10) minutes before the posted pickup time. For the safety of all riders, students may only get on the bus at their designated/zoned stop. If your child arrives late at their bus stop and misses the bus, please do not take them to a different bus stop on the route. Please take your child directly to school.

    You do not have to call and "register" or sign your child up to ride the bus. Please have them at the bus stop. Within the first few days of riding, the driver will give each rider a Student Information Card which you need to complete and have your child promptly turn back into the driver. Thank you! 

    Please Note: All schools now dismiss one hour earlier on Thursdays.  Cahaba, Magnolia, Paine, and HTMS dismiss at 2:00 PM while HTHS dismisses at 2:15 PM.
