Parents and Students: Click the "Find Your Bus Stop" link above to locate your bus stop and the scheduled pick-up and drop-off times. Bus numbers are also available, but are subject to change with little or no notice. Students will be picked up at approved stops. Riders must then complete and submit a bus pass to the driver prior to boarding in the afternoon. The bus driver will keep the bus pass as a reference card.
Problems: Technical issues on the website are typically caused by corrupted map data or multiple spellings for the same street, road or highway. (i.e. East Goodman, Goodman Rd E, Hwy 302, Highway 302 E).

How safe are our school buses?
Desoto County bus drivers are subject to a thorough background check and pre-employment drug screening. Annual and random drug and alcohol screenings are also conducted. All bus drivers must be in possession of a current Commercial Drivers License with Passenger-(P) and Safety-(S) endorsements and pass a DOT physical. In addition recertification is required every two years along wih several hours of in-service training conducted several times per year. Drivers are held to the highest professional standards and are supervised and supported in order to ensure students are transported safely each and every day.
