TRANSPORTATION

SOCSD’s Office of Transportation has implemented a new software program to improve bus transportation efficiency and to assist parents with bus information.  

To create an account, go to msstarkvilleocsd.traversaride360.com/.  You will need your child's MSIS number to connect him/her to your account.  The new software program utilizes student data that parents provide to PowerSchool during registration. Please be aware some student information may not be updated until registration is complete.  

If you are an employee of the SOCSD, and your child needs bus transportation from one school to another, he/she will ride Bus 69 in the morning and Bus 55 (referred to as the employee shuttle).

If your child needs transportation to MSU in the afternoon, he/she will ride bus 58 (referred to as the MSU shuttle).

Due to ongoing construction on the MSU campus, we are offering five stops to campus:

  1. Sanderson Center
  2. Hilbun Hall
  3. Doorman Hall
  4. Wise Center
  5. Child Development Center

Elementary students should arrive on campus between 3:30 and 4 pm. Middle/high school students should arrive on campus between 4:30 and 5 pm.

Parents of students in grades prek-4 are asked to meet their children at the bus stop. Children in grades 5-12 may walk to their campus destination at the parent’s discretion.

The Emerson/Boys and Girls Club shuttle for Sudduth Elementary is Bus 20.

The Emerson/Boys and Girls Club shuttle for Henderson Ward Stewart Elementary and Overstreet Elementary is Bus 51.

The Extended Day shuttle for Henderson Ward Stewart and Overstreet Elementary School is Bus 31.

The Boys and Girls Club shuttle for AMS is Bus 20.

Please remember that transportation delays are likely during the first few weeks of school as students, parents and drivers become familiar with routes.

You can connect with the Office of Transportation to stay informed about bus delays, substitute drivers, and more! Subscribe to Mr. Bus Shop, the Transportation Office’s texting service, to receive text alerts on your phone.
