Welcome to Transportation 

2020-21 School Bus Registration

Bus registration for the 2021-21 school year begins July 25, 2020. All student school bus registrations MUST be completed by September 16, 2020, including payment, or students will not be able to ride the bus the first week of school. Registration that occurs after this date will take a week to process before a student may ride the bus. 

Due to COVID-19 there is a cap on bus riders this year. Students who have completed registration and payments will get the first priority.  

IMPORTANT NOTE: A transportation zone of 1-1/2 mile radius from each school site will be implemented for the 2020-21 school year. Regular education transportation services will be made available to any interested students residing outside the 1-1/2 mile radius. 

Please follow the steps below to complete your child's school bus registration. A separate registration must be filled out for each student riding the bus.

Can children be dropped off at a different stop on the way home?
Students may only ride their assigned buses. Transporting students to an alternative, yet existing, stop on the student’s same route may be granted if done so on a regular basis, space permitting. Requests for alternative stops should be made in writing to the principal at least two days in advance of the request.

What are the expectations about behavior on the bus?
Students are expected to behave in a manner that will provide optimum safety of the individual student as well as the safety of other students aboard the bus. A complete list of bus rules is available on the District Transportation Department tab.

What if schools close due to COVID-19?
Transportation fees have been adjusted to account for reduced transportation needs due to COVID-19. Any additional adjustments will be addressed as needed. Please contact AUSD for refunds.
