• Registering for Transportation

    Registering your student for transportation is easy! All students (this includes returning students and new students) are required to register for transportation annually. You will receive all bus information in the mail in early August. The information will include pickup/drop off location, stop times, a bus pass, and a letter indicating whether you reside in the pay or free zone.

  • Reminders

    Bus service preregistration is very important in order to establish routes and provide your student’s bus pass. As a reminder, to qualify for transportation services, the student must meet the minimum following criteria:

    • Attend a WDMCS school or Sacred Heart School.
    • Attend the school within the assigned school boundaries as determined by their primary residence.
    • Each school has a designated area around the school called the walk zone where bus service is not available. Students who are not eligible for free transportation and live outside the walk zone for their assigned school (i.e. pay zone) will be able to purchase bus passes. (Board Policy 710.02)
