Register by May 15 to Get on the Bus

Note: The Express Shuttles do not require the May 15 registration to ensure bus service by the start of the year.

The new school year starts August 3, 2017. In order for your child to receive transportation on the first day of school, register your child at his or her school prior to May 15. Transportation is available for those students who meet the transportation eligibility requirements.

Note: Continuing students do not need to re-register. You only need to register if you change schools or change your residential address. Remember that if your address changes, you will need to let your school know what your new address is by May 15.

See the registration procedures for information about what to bring with you when you register your child.

If you register your child after May 15, transportation may not be available for the first three weeks of school. We will provide a transportation route to your child as soon as possible, and we will notify you of your child's bus stop assignment when that information is available.

If you want to be sure that your child has transportation on the first day of school, register your child at his or her school prior to May 15.

Bus Route Information

Letters are mailed to eligible students with route information two weeks before the start of the school year.
