Bus & Transit Pass Rates
Bus Pass Sales
School and transit bus pass sales are done using our online application form. We are no longer accepting in person applications, or applications using the forms from previous years. To apply, please fill out the online application form, a credit card authorization form (we can also process the payment over the phone if requested – please note that on your application when you apply) and attach a JPEG photo of your child. The credit card authorization form must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your application will not be put in the queue to be processed until we have received both the completed application form and the credit card authorization form.
We are currently only processing bus passes for the 2023/2024 school year – bus passes for next school year won’t be available for purchase until 2024.
Please allow us 10 – 14 days to process your pass once you have submitted the application. We will contact you regarding the status of your bus pass.
The deadline to apply for school bus passes for the 2023/2024 school year, as implemented by the school districts, is October 31st. This deadline applies only to school bus passes due to limited seating on the school busses – transit passes will be available for purchase for the entirety of the 2023/2024 school year. If you have already applied for a school bus pass for this year, please do not resubmit your application, regardless of whether you are on the waiting list or just waiting for a response back from us regarding your bus pass’s current status.
