• The Express stop survey is a method for the Transportation Department to gain insight into the needs of our magnet families attending the 12 Express stop schools. All students who attend a magnet program and are eligible for transportation are included in the survey. The express survey has been extended through February 17, 2023.

    Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) Transportation is committed to ensuring that every student can be focused on learning each day. CMS Transportation provides a gateway to academic achievement by facilitating safe, efficient, and equitable access for all students. 
    Over the years, CMS has increased the number of magnet programs offered, resulting in a growing demand for more transportation. The department has identified Express Stops as an alternative mode to increase access, increase system efficiencies, and to improve student experience.
    As announced at the Board of Education meeting on December 13, 2022, transportation will launch Express Stops for identified full and partial magnet high schools.
    Express Stops will not impact students who attend their HOME magnet or non-magnet schools. The schools below are the magnet schools that have been identified:
    •    CPCC - Central Campus
    •    East Mecklenburg High School
    •    EE Waddell
    •    Harding IB & Berry Technical Academy
