Johnston Bus Schedule
The stops listed are the pick-up times. If you have a question concerning drop-off times, please call First Student (401-944-5880).
There are changes throughout the year, adding and removing stops, traffic patterns, ridership, etc. The changes tend to start slowing down in another week or two. By next week, the drivers stop going to empty stops so the times change again by a few minutes. Be ready 10 minutes or so before the computer generated time and the bus could be up to 20 minutes later due to bus loading at the school, traffic, another parent isn’t home at another stop, etc.
