SOLON BUS ROUTES
A number of factors are considered when determining student bus stops, including the distance from the stop to the student’s home, safety of the stop, visibility around the stop (not visibility of the stop from the student’s home), location on a main thoroughfare and number of students at a stop. Bus routes are created to be as efficient as possible so that the time students are on the bus is as short as possible. Student safety is always the primary concern. At the same time, home stops are just not feasible for every Solon student.
Students living more than one mile from the school receive bus transportation in Solon. State law sets the maximum distance students who receive bus transportation can walk from their home to a bus stop at .5 miles, however, in Solon, the distance guideline limits are considerably shorter:
- Grades PreK-4 – Up to .1 miles
- Grades 5-8 – Up to .2 miles
- Grades 9-12 – Up to .3 miles
(Students who live within one mile of school and are receiving courtesy transportation may see stop distances from home that a little longer.)
Any requests for stop location changes must be made by completing the following change request form:
