Transportation Opt-In

About the Transportation Opt-in System

The opt-in system will help the district address the ongoing bus driver shortage and help continue to create more efficient and sustainable bus routes.  Bussing will be provided based on opt in responses and bussing eligibility.  Submissions will be processed in the order received. 

Opt-in occurs annually in the spring. We ask that all families who utilize SoWashCo Schools bus transportation complete the form each year so we can get an accurate count of students that need transportation services. 

Your transportation status information (bus route, non-eligible, etc) will be posted in Campus Parent Portal in mid-August. 

If you need to change the transportation selection(s) you made for the 2024-25 school year, please complete the Transportation Change Form
