LEON COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) — The district rolled out changes to the bus route system late last week.

Unfortunately, those changes were met with some issues.

WTXL's Jada Williams joined us from the Leon County Schools Bus Depot with everything you need to know for Monday morning.

When you get to the Leon County Schools website, you'll click on the departments tab.

From there, find transportation and buses.

You can either choose find route by address or find route by school.

One thing to note is that when you go to the find route by address tab, this message comes up in bold red letters.

"Parents are responsible for getting their child to and from the bus stop safely."

It also mentions that there is no guarantee that your child will have a safe walk path to and from the bus stop.

But Superintendent Rocky Hanna says that they are reviewing some of those hazardous situations.

"It's a case by case basis. If we have a hazardous walking situation, then we have a group and a committee. There's a process that deems it hazardous walkingeven if its in a 2 miles radius. There's a process, but we'll have it cleaned up before the end of the first week of school, said Rocky Hanna, Leon County School Superintendent.

Courtesy bus stops are being eliminated this year.

That means that any stop within two miles of a middle or high school won't be a thing anymore.

With the old system kids used to know buses by its number. If a bus broke down, the student would have to look for the replacement bus with a piece of paper in the window..

Now they have eliminated bus numbers and that system.

Kids will have to know their route now, but can find it more easily on these signs.
