Bus passes are $75.00 per student, per semester. The semester maximum fee is $175.00 per family.

Open enrolled students who have a pickup and a drop off point out of their assigned attendance boundary as per Board policy will be charged $150 per semester, which does not apply to the family maximum. An open enrolled student who uses a pickup and drop off point within the boundary of the school of attendance will purchase a regular bus pass ($75.00 per semester) and will not be subject to the increased rate.
