Bus Ridership Eligibility for the 2020-21 School Year
Students who attend a school inside their catchment area and live outside the walk limit are considered eligible riders and will receive first priority when we develop our bus lists over the summer. The walk limit for elementary schools is 2 km and the walk limit for secondary schools is 3.2 km.
In some cases, when routes have been established and there are available seats on the bus, students not meeting the eligibility requirements to ride the bus may make application for use of an available seat on the appropriate bus serving their residential area and school of attendance. However, if a seat is granted, any such permission may be withdrawn at any time and should not be considered to constitute a precedent or establish a right.
The school district will provide confirmation of ridership status by August 30th, 2020.
For more information on our transportation services, see Regulation 4160 – Transportation of Students.
