Routes to School

Getting to and from school safely can be a big issue for students and families. District 5 is the most urban of the five Districts and thirty-nine schools from both Tucson Unified School District and Sunnyside Unified School District fall within our boundaries, as well as multiple private and charter schools.

 

If taking the school bus or driving/carpooling isn't an option for you, or you'd like to explore alternative options, check out this interactive map that we've made of District 5! It shows bike routes, bus routes and stops, and all of the schools in the District and can serve as a tool for families to plan pathways for students to get to and from their schools. Click on the map to open it! 

 

The interactive map is very detailed! Use the Zoom In/Zoom Out buttons to see individual  schools and bus stops and navigate along the streets, and you can uncheck boxes in the Layer List to see certain categories (only bus stops, only bike routes, etc.). 

For information on the School Bus Routes for either TUSD or SUSD, see the information below on how to contact these departments.
