Transportation

IMPORTANT MESSAGE: Bus routes are subject to change.  Please monitor district communications and this page for transportation updates.

* Route times may differ from those of previous school years due to modifications made in response to COVID-19 and altered bell times.
 

Richland School District Two is following the guidance of the South Carolina Department of Education (SCDE) to address COVID-19.  Measures include requiring all students and staff on buses to wear masks, reducing capacity to 67%, opening windows and roof vents for increased ventilation, and sanitizing buses between routes.  We encourage parents who are able to do so to make alternative transportation arrangements to reduce the number of students on the buses.

Richland Two will begin Phase 3 on Monday, March 22, and follow the bell schedule below beginning on that date. The modified schedule will affect bus pickup and dropoff times.
