School bus transportation is a cooperative effort involving transportation staff, schools, parents, students and the community. The Meridian School District safely transports an average of 13400 students per day to 50 different schools on 270 buses. Each year our buses cover an average of over 3 million miles and use approximately 400,000 gallons of fuel. The mission of the transportation department is to provide safe, efficient, and enjoyable access to learning in a manner that contributes in a positive way to the overall academic success of the students of this district.
Bus Stop Locator
The bus stop locator is a service that allows the user to enter an address and find the nearest bus stops for the elementary, middle, and high schools that students attend who live at that address. The locator also allows the user to reference the attendance area maps for the district's neighborhood schools. A few notes about the locator:
1. Only enter the address number and street name. Do not enter the City, State or Zip Code
2. The bus stop locator will only name the neighborhood school. Students attending choice schools ride the bus to their neighborhood school and then ride by shuttle to the choice school.
3. The locator calculates walk zones based on distance from the school, but does not calculate safety conditions that might result in safety busing being provided. If you believe that you live within 1.5 miles of your school but receive busing because of unsafe walking conditions, check the walk zone maps provided further down on this page.
The maps and data used in the school and bus stop locator are based on the most recent data available to Joint School District No. 2. Joint School District No. 2 makes no warranty or guarantee as to the absolute correctness or sufficiency of the information contained in the data or maps. The user is encouraged to check with Joint School District No. 2 if he/she has any concerns, questions, or doubts about the information provided.
