New school year, new online tools for parents and students

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

The start of the new school year is almost here, and the Hamilton County Department of Education’s Transportation Department hopes to help parents and students.

Several online tools, such as a bus stop locator, can help keep kids safe and reduce the worry factor for parents.

The locator provides information such as the bus number and estimated drop-off/pick-up time.

Another section allows parents to request a bus stop if one is not close, but an email sent to Hamilton County parents suggests “Please read all the information regarding school bus stops before requesting a stop.”

Also listed on the site are bus rules and inclement weather information.
