Clark County parents may begin registering their children for bus service.

Parents may call the district’s transportation department at 702-799-8111 on weekdays from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on weekends from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. to sign their children up for bus service. In general, children who live more than two miles from their neighborhood school are eligible to ride the school bus.

Parents must have their child’s student identification number and date of birth to register. School District officials strongly encourage parents to register their children as soon as possible to avoid potential delays.

The School District’s 1,550 school buses transport more than 100,000 students daily, making 19,000 general stops and 9,000 door-to-door stops for special-needs children. Clark County school buses travel nearly 20 million miles a year, which is equivalent to about 84 trips to the moon and back.
