JCPS transportation hotline will start Sunday

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Jefferson County Public Schools' transportation hotline, which is designed to help answer any transportation-related questions parents may have during the first week of school, will open Sunday evening.

Starting Sunday, parents will be able to dial 485-RIDE (485-7433) to speak with a JCPS team member who will be able to provide information about their child's bus number and find stops closest to their houses. Families may also use the online JCPS Bus Finder tool located on the back-to-school section of the JCPS homepage.
