How to request bus transportation service

Bus service is offered to all children who attend Carrollton City Schools who live inside the city limits. To request service, parents must sign up when they register. Change requests for bus service afterward can be done online:

(linked to your Infinite Campus account). 

  • Families will be notified by email when requests have been activated, usually in about two or three days.
  • For families without internet, they may make their requests in person at their child's school.
  • If your child is not a regular rider and on occasion needs to ride the bus, please contact the school so a temporary pass can be issued.

Bus route information can be obtained from the Transportation office located at:
930 Hay’s Mill Road
Carrollton, Georgia 30117.

Riding requirements/expectations

  • Riders are to be at their pick-up location 10 minutes before bus arrival time. Since drivers are watching out for the safety of all the children, they may not see children waiting on a porch or coming out of the home.
  • Buses will not be able to make extra stops to pick up late riders.
  • Riders must remain in their seats at all times, be well-mannered, and respect others while on the bus. Everyone's safety is jeopardized when bus drivers become distracted by inappropriate behavior.
  • No eating or drinking is allowed on buses.
  • Students will be allowed two designated persons to get them on and off bus.
  • Pictures, selfies or videos may not be taken on the bus
  • Students may not talk on the phone without the driver's permission.

School bus safety initiatives

Seat belt requirements

Since 1992, Carrollton City Schools has been the only school system in the state to require all school buses to have seat belts for students.

‘CrossingGuard’ bus cameras program

The Carrollton City School System has partnered with American Traffic Solutions to deploy CrossingGuard®, ATS’ new technology to help school districts address the growing problem of illegal passing of school buses that are stopped for children to board or disembark.Before deciding to add the technology to the Carrollton City Schools school bus fleet, the school district conducted an informal study to determine the number of stop-arm violations. In one afternoon, a total of 23 violations occurred.“Student safety is at the forefront of every discussion we have in the school system,” said Michael Sanders, assistant superintendent of Carrollton City Schools. “Through the program, we hope to significantly reduce the number of these types of violations which will increase the overall safety of our students.”Through the program, high-resolution cameras are mounted to the front and rear driver’s side of a school bus to capture potential violation events. When the stop arm is deployed, the system detects if a vehicle passes the stopped school bus within the enforcement zone.Violation videos and license plate images will then be reviewed by the Carrollton Police Department for approval prior to citations being issued. In Georgia, the penalty for a violation will warrant the vehicle’s owner a $300 fine for the first offense, $750 fine for the second, and $1,000 for a third violation within a five-year period.“We are excited to partner with the City of Carrollton Police Department and American Traffic Solutions on this initiative,” said Sanders. “This new technology serves as another opportunity to educate the citizens and re-emphasize the importance of proceeding cautiously when approaching a school bus.”The school system installed the cameras at the start of the 2012-2013 school year.
