Routes and School Zones

 

McKinney ISD and Durham School Services utilize a online program called InfoFinder that provides students and parents information about bus routes and pick-up and drop-off times and locations. Once accessed, viewers can enter their home address and the program will provide bus service information for the appropriate elementary, middle and high school.

Home addresses that receive a "No information available" response means:

  1. Either the address is within the two-mile walk zone and the student is not eligible for bus transportation or -
  2. The address submitted is not currently on an active bus route or stop.

The Texas Education Agency guidelines specify the following as appropriate distances for a child to walk from home to their bus stop:

  • Elementary Students - 0.1 to 0.25 miles
  • Secondary Students - 0.25 to 0.5 miles
In general, it is considered as a "10-minute walk". For comparison, 0.25 miles equals the distance of 4.4 football fields.

In an effort to provide the best possible service to our community, Durham School Services often provides shorter distances for your child to walk to their bus stop.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS REGARDING THE BUS SERVICE INFORMATION PROVIDED PLEASE CONTACT DURHAM SCHOOL SERVICES DIRECTLY AT 972-542-8316.

Additional information regarding Durham School Services:

Times posted through the InfoFinder program reflect the regularly scheduled times the bus will normally arrive at each individual stop in good weather and normal traffic flow. Inclement weather, traffic congestion, or construction may cause delays in regularly posted stop times. Students are asked to be at their assigned bus stop five minutes before their scheduled time to load.

The information provided by InfoFinder is subject to change throughout the school year and bus drivers will attempt to notify all riders of these upcoming changes, as they become necessary.
