  • What school will my child attend? Where is our bus stop?
    Information about school attendance zones, bus stops, and pick up/drop off times are available in our Bus Stop and Zone Finder. Bus stop information, including locations and pick up and drop off times, will be posted online on August 23, 2022.
  • What is T-Pass?
    New this Year! Know when your child gets on and off the school bus with T-Pass. The transportation department is launching T-Pass, a new student-tracking tool for families. All students will be issued a T-Pass card that they will use to swipe a card reader as they board and exit the school bus. Parents and guardians will receive a notification when their child gets on and off the school bus via the Here Comes the Bus website and app. Parents and guardians will know the bus number, time of the scan and the exact location where the child got on or off the bus.

  • How do I submit a Childcare Bus Transportation Request?
    If your child needs bus transportation to or from a childcare location or a babysitter within your school zone, please complete the Transportation Childcare Request Form by August 12. Forms are available online and at your child's school. All childcare bus transportation requests must be submitted by August 19, to be processed for the first day of school. Requests received after August 12 and on Open House Night will delay this service until the second week of school. Please note that a new request must be completed each school year. Questions may be directed to your school's office staff.
