Cobb County Transportation:
Starting Wednesday, September 28th,
2011, students will no longer be allowed to ride a different bus
other than their assigned bus. In the past students
have been allowed to ride a different bus to go home with a
friend or for child-care purposes. This year, due to a
reduced number of bus routes, the buses are filled to
capacity and CCSD can no longer transport children who are
not assigned to that particular bus. Parents may still
submit a Student Bus Pass requesting their child be allowed
to get off at a different stop on their assigned bus route.
As this change has come from the Transportation
Department, please direct
all questions or
concerns to them at 678-594-8000.
