Transportation Services For K-12 Students

  • Getting students to and from school every school day is a huge task and among the most complex responsibilities entrusted to Cincinnati Public Schools. School transportation services are offered to eligible students who live within the boundaries of the Cincinnati Public School District and attend CPS schools, as well as students who live within the CPS district and attend charter and private (nonpublic) schools.

    Yellow school buses (elementary schools) and Metro buses (public transportation; high schools only) carry 35,000 students daily (CPS, and private and charter school students) — approximately 15,000 yellow bus riders and approximately 9,000 Metro bus riders. Our buses travel more than 200,000 miles a week — that's about eight times around the globe every week! Yellow buses alone cover more than 5 million miles a year transporting students.
