Two Mile Limit

2 Mile Limit for Transportation Services

Students who live within the 2 Mile limit from home to school are not provided transportation services as per Florida Rule 6A-3.001 (3)

A reasonable walking distance for any student who is not otherwise eligible for transportation pursuant to Section 236.083, Florida Statutes, is any distance not more than two (2) miles between the home and school or one and one-half ( 1 & 1/2 ) miles between the home and assigned bus stop. Such distance shall be measured from the closest pedestrian entry point of the property where the student resides to the closest pedestrian entry point of the assigned school building or to the assigned bus stop. The pedestrian entry point of the residence shall be where the private property meets the public right-of-way. The district shall determine the shortest pedestrian route whether or not it is accessible to motor vehicle traffic.

IDENTIFICATION OF HAZARDOUS CONDITIONS - When a request for review is made to the District's Transportation Department concerning a condition perceived to be hazardous to students who live within the 2 mile limit and walk to school, such condition shall be inspected by a representative of the school district to see if it meets the State's requirements for Hazardous Conditions as per Florida Statute 1006.23.
