PASS PROCEDURE

Only registered riders are permitted to board a school bus.

Students are only allowed to ride the bus for which they are registered.

Once the bus registration has been processed, bus passes will be issued by the Bus Driver. Students already registered for busing are automatically registered to ride the bus for the upcoming year. Students do not need a new pass if they change buses or schools. When a students’ busing needs have changed, they must re-register for busing.

This pass must be scanned each time the student boards school bus

It is the responsibility of the student to carry their bus pass and to ensure that it is not damaged.

If a bus pass stops scanning due to negligence (shows signs of damage – is bent, cut etc.) follow the Lost or Damaged Bus Pass Process. If a bus pass shows no signs of damage, yet has stopped scanning follow Bus Pass Stops Scanning Process.

THERE IS A $10 REPLACEMENT FEE FOR A LOST OR DAMAGED BUS PASS. 

LOST OR DAMAGED BUS PASS PROCESS 

  • Report the lost or damaged bus pass to the Bus Driver immediately.
    • The bus pass replacement fee can be paid by cash, debit/credit card at your school office.
    • Bus Drivers will not accept the bus pass replacement fee.
  • Students will not be permitted to board the bus without their bus pass 
  • The replacement bus pass will be printed after payment is received. The Bus Driver will issue the new pass to your student.

BUS PASS STOPS SCANNING PROCESS (NO DAMAGE TO THE CARD) 

  • If a bus pass no longer works (doesn’t scan on the bus), students will report this to the bus driver, who will arrange for a free replacement bus pass.
  • The student will continue to use the bus pass to board the bus until a replacement card arrives.
  • Bus Drivers will hand out the new pass to students when they board the bus.

FORGOTTEN BUS PASS

  • If a student forgets their pass, they will be reminded to bring it the next day. If the student does not have their card the following day, bus access will be denied.

Students will not be permitted to board the bus without their bus pass  

ALTERNATE ADDRESS/CHANGE OF ADDRESS

  • If a student moves or needs to have an alternate address added to their busing information, you must re-register providing your new bussing needs. Be sure to include ALL busing needs when you re-register.
  • The transportation department will let the school know about busing changes.
