Transportation for Free and Reduced-Cost Lunch Program Recipients

  • If there is an existing route in the area, students with approved free or reduced-cost federal lunch program applications who live less than 2.5 miles from school may be eligible for free or reduced-cost transportation on a first-come, first-serve, space-available basis. Routes are built around those who have registered during open registration, May 1 through July 24. Registrations received after July 24 will not be guaranteed and will be processed on a first-come, first-serve, space-available basis beginning on Sept. 3. Late registration may result in an increased walk distance to the bus stop or placement on a wait list.

    To receive free or reduced-cost for transportation, parents must check the waiver box on the federal lunch program application stating that information may be shared with transportation.
