Transportation

Our goal is to provide safe, reliable and efficient transportation to students who live in our school district.

Approximately 18,400 students (including nonpublic students) who reside within SoWashCo Schools boundaries will attend school this year. Roughly 14,000 will ride a school bus to and from school. We work to ensure that students arrive at school ready to learn! 

Your Child's Bus Route information

Bus route information is viewable online through Campus Parent Portal.

Non Public schools will initially share bus information directly to parents and parents  can contact the Transportation office throughout the year. 

Families with students on Special Education Bus routes can contact Transportation by calling 651-425-5303 and choosing option 1.
