Routing & Administration

  • The School District of Manatee County is divided into four general transportation areas. Each transportation area is assigned a Route Administrator and Route Analyst. It is important to note that while the areas are geographic regions, there is a significant amount of overlap that results from routing and scheduling buses to maximize efficiency.

    The Route Administrator is the supervisor for the school bus drivers, attendants and aides that operate within each transportation area.

    The Route Analyst is responsible for setting up and maintaining school bus routes to efficiently and safely transport students within each transportation area. They also determine eligibility for transportation services, and assign students to a bus and stop.
