Transportation Window Opens for the 2024-2025 School Year

Greensboro, N.C. – The registration window for school bus transportation for Guilford County Schools (GCS) will be open from April 8 through May 31. All students who have never registered or will have a change of address this fall can register by visiting www.gcsnc.com/transportation.

This fall, several important changes will go into effect that parents need to be aware of and plan for.

New and current students at the following 25 schools will need to re-register for transportation due to high numbers of non-ridership.

While more than 40,000 students registered for transportation last year, only 29,000 students currently ride the bus.

Additionally, newly admitted Early/Middle College at GTCC students or current students whose home address has changed will only be provided transportation based on their home school attendance zone. The new transportation service zones can be found here.

Current Early/Middle College at GTCC students with an assigned bus stop and those who do not live in the mentioned zones will retain their transportation through graduation unless they move.

The Transportation Department will host several in-person registration events for families.

All families will receive communications regarding transportation from their school. Families can also stay updated by visiting www.gcsnc.com/transportation. [BN2] 

GCS buses cover more than 40,000 miles daily and have an 84% on-time arrival average. In some cases, students face ride times of up to 90 minutes or more each way. These changes will not only help to ensure more students arrive on time each day but will also increase efficiency.
