School Bus Eligibility

  • Address changes are only processed at your students' assigned school. Asheville City Schools will provide transportation to/from your home address for students living within the assigned district. Out of district students are not eligible. We do not provide convenient stops or stops to parents/guardians' places of work. Students will only be allowed to ride a bus to addresses/contacts listed in their PowerSchool Accounts. Any stops that are not to and from the student’s home, to approved ACS daycare or programs are subject to available space/capacity on that bus. Any stops, including daycares, where students are not domiciled, will not be assigned during the first ten days of school OR until ALL in-district students have been placed and bus capacity audits are completed. It is important that you maintain an accurate residence address for every student attending school.

    Alternate Stop Request other than home address:

    An alternate stop request would be any stop other than the one based on the student’s residence. This would include licensed daycares, and/or relative addresses. Transportation for alternate stop locations will be provided within the student’s school boundaries.   Only those students eligible for transportation may request these transportation arrangements. Please note that transportation services will not be granted to locations such as public businesses (e.g., a parents’ workplace, non-ACS after-school activities, or student workplaces). 
    All address requests must be on the students' contact list in  Power School. 
    The Transportation Services Request Form can be found on the ACS Transportation Page.
