Updated: Aug. 16, 2022
Annual Round-Trip $2,500

Parent Paid Transportation Contract

All costs associated with this program will be based on the total number of students riding the buses. The exact cost of the program can only be determined with an accurate number of total bus riders for the current school year. This process is completed at the beginning of each school year. The more students participating in the program, the lower the annual costs are for each family. Based on prior years of ridership, the approximate cost per student for an annual round-trip pass is $2,500. Depending on the total number of students riding this school year, the actual cost may be higher or lower.

Families have the option to pay the full amount at the beginning of the school year, or may choose to pay in installments. Please remember that should the number of participants increase or decrease, the expenses will be adjusted accordingly.


Student Bus Rules of Conduct

The following Rules of Conduct must be adhered to by each student riding the bus:

  • A valid OCSA School Bus Pass must be presented to the driver upon boarding or upon request.
  • Bus passes are non-transferable and are required to be shown daily.
  • Be considerate of the property at and near the loading areas.
  • Line up in an orderly manner on the curb in preparation for boarding the bus.
