Locate your attendance area school/s with the School Locator.
Disclaimer: All school attendance boundaries are subject to change by School Board action. The maps and descriptions are provided for convenience only.
Students who live less than two miles from a school are not eligible for transportation based on the State Board of Education Rule 6-A 001(3).
If you are interested in finding out if a student at your school is eligible for transportation, please take a moment to read Hillsborough County Public Schools Board of Education’s Transportation Policy.
Transportation is not guaranteed, so always consult our department for student eligibility if you are not sure.
A student is eligible for transportation if:
Special Education Busing: Transportation Services is committed to providing the highest level of service and support for students with disabilities.
SchoolChoice: If a student Choices into a new school, which is not their home school, they may not be eligible for transportation services, as stated in the HCPS Board of Education Policy.
In addition to the daily transportation services to and from school, we work very hard to provide transportation for our HCPS athletes to and from sporting events.
School buses owned by the District School Board of Hillsborough County are the preferred mode of student transportation for all extra-curricular field trips of an educational nature, athletic events, performances as uniformed units (school bands, cheerleader, etc.) representing the school and/or school district, or other school sponsored activities in which the students are required or expected to participate.
Requests for transportation services for extracurricular trips must be made to Transportation Services fourteen (14) days prior to the date of the trip and must include the date of the trip, number of students participating, destination, times of pickup and return, education purpose, and names of chaperones. The cost incurred by Transportation Services in providing transportation for extracurricular trips shall be reimbursed by the school, department, etc., receiving the service.
