Seattle Public Schools releases transportation plan

As school assignments start arriving in the mail, Seattle Public Schools has released its transportation zone plan for bus and walk zones for the 2011-12 school year.
From the SPS website:

In the new transportation plan, transportation eligibility for attendance area elementary and K-8 students will be based on transportation zones.
Students within the transportation zone and outside the walk zone for a school will be eligible for District-provided transportation.
Students outside their immediate transportation zone, but within their extended intermediary boundary, can walk to an attendance area school for bus pick-up if they live within a safe walk zone (up to one mile). Otherwise, they walk up to a 1/2 mile to a regular neighborhood stop. This is a temporary option to extend transportation for two (2) years (2011-12 & 2012-13).

  • Transportation Zones will include the entire attendance area of a school
  • Transportation Zones will extend to areas within a 1.25 mile radius from the school and within the middle school service area
  • Walk zones to schools will still apply.

Here are transportation maps for schools with boundaries in the Greenwood-Phinney area.
