Transportation for Magnet Schools

Yellow bus transportation to and from school is provided for eligible K-6 students attending Cincinnati Public Schools' magnet elementary programs.

Bus transportation is not provided for preschool students.

Magnet elementary programs draw students from two assigned areas — East and West   or the magnet program is designated as citywide serving the entire district.

Citywide Magnet Schools

A student enrolled in a citywide magnet program is eligible for bus transportation if the student lives more than 1 mile from the school.

Area Magnet Schools

A child's home street address determines the area assignment for magnet programs. Students are eligible for bus transportation if they enroll in a magnet program within their area (East or West) and if they live more than 1 mile from the school.

If a student is enrolled in a magnet school outside the student's assigned area, parents must provide transportation to and from school.

To determine your child's magnet area:  Identify your child's neighborhood school assignment by using the Interactive Cropper Map System tool.
