Our pick up traffic flow has changed!
2017-2018 Bus Schedule
Know a Bus Driver? FSI offers competitive pay and is always looking for additional bus drivers.
Please contact us at 828-318-8140 for additional information.
Franklin is pleased to offer bus service. Please note this is a limited service. We prioritize based on need and hardship. We cannot guarantee a spot on the bus to any student until we have established the bus rider schedule for the year. Our bus is currently full for 2017-18, with a wait list. To be added to the wait list, please contact us at the number above and ask for Beth Rhatigan.
The following times are based on driving the route BUT will not be finalized until we have experience driving with students and school-year traffic. Please arrive at your bus stop at LEAST 5 minutes before the scheduled pick-up time.
