Request a Bus Stop Change

Request a School Bus Stop Change

This page provides instructions for requesting to move a bus stop from one location to another location or to create an entirely new bus stop. If you are looking to have your child ride to or from a different bus stop that is already in use for your child's school, please submit a Request for Transportation Accommodation HERE.

To submit a bus stop change request, please follow these steps:

  1. Click to open the PDF Bus Stop Change Request Form. You can save this document to your digital device and complete it on your device using a PDF editor, or you can print the form to fill out by hand. If you have any photos or other information you wish to include, you can use the back of the form or attach additional pages or documents.

  2. Return your completed form to the Transportation Department. Forms can be sent by US Mail, fax, email, or can be dropped off at our office. More details for each of these options will be given in the next section.

  3. Wait for notification. The Bus Stop Change Committee meets once per month, usually in the 2nd week of the month. Following the meeting, all parents who submitted requests will receive notification via US Mail Certified Letter, letting you know if your request was approved or not. If your request was denied, the letter will also list the reasons for the denial.

Options for returning your request form:

  • US Mail: ECSD Transportation Department
    100 E. Texar Drive
    Pensacola, FL 32503

  • Fax: 850-469-5561

  • Email: Click HERE to find the appropriate email recipients based on your child's school.

  • Drop off in person at the Transportation Department Office (address shown above).

Please note: all of these delivery methods are equally valid, and none give any advantage or disadvantage in the bus stop change approval process.

Requests for bus stop changes should not be made during the first two weeks of the school year. At the start of the school year, bus routes and rosters are still very fluid. Once things begin to settle down - normally after the first two weeks of school - the Transportation Department can begin to consider bus stop change requests. We will not generally make bus stop changes until then.
