Johnston County Public Schools is one of the top ten largest school systems in the state. Each school year we operate over 300 school buses and activity buses. Our school buses travel over 22,000 miles each day, transporting over 23,000 students daily.
Over the past several years stops have been combined together to be no closer than .2 of a mile apart. Also, we no longer go into subdivisions or side streets for middle and high school students that live less than .5 of a mile from the entrance or intersection. For safety reasons elementary students will only have to walk out of subdivisions or side streets that we presently travel, if they live more than .2 of a mile from the stop. Johnston County Public Schools is devoted to providing the safest mode of transportation for all our students.
Parents are responsible for making sure their child arrives at the bus stop safely and on time and ready to board the bus. Please help us keep the children of Johnston County safe by observing school buses and students standing at bus stops. If you are a parent, please have your child at the bus stop early. By all of us working together we can keep our children safe.
