length of bus ride


angelmarieeric September 25, 2011

Our bus company just changed a route. We live four miles from school and my six year old has to ride the bus for 55 to 61 minutes per trip. Are there regulations as to how long children can be on a bus without bathroom privaledges?

Hi angelmarieeric,

I'd contact your school district and then call your state board of education. I know my district uses very few busses, and when they do, it's common for children to be on the bus for an hour or more (mostly magnet schools).

But to find out what applies in your area, I'd contact the district and then the state.

Good luck, and let us know what you find out.
