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 everyday. We work to ensure that students arrive at school ready to learn!  

School year 2022-2023 Bus Information shows in Parent Portal. 

Students may only ride their assigned bus to and from school.

Transportation eligibility can be reviewed below under Transportation Guidelines-Transportation Eligibility.
