About Durham Bus Services

Durham Bus Services provides bus transportation to students living within the school attendance zone, but outside the 1.5-mile walk zone or who live in areas predetermined to be hazardous for walk-in students.

Eight driver/bus locations in the county are utilized to provide efficient and convenient sites for drivers to check-in and pick-up their buses to begin routes. These locations are McClellanville, Mount Pleasant, North Charleston, Ladson, James Island, Johns Island and Baptist Hill/Edisto.
