Bus Stops and Times

Bus DriverWe provide bus service to students who live more than a mile from their neighborhood school and students with special needs. We do not normally provide transportation to students who live outside of their normal school boundaries. For more information:

For questions, please call the transportation department at 360-662-8800.

Stop Locations and Times — Coming Soon!

Please check for stop locations and times for the new school year after Aug. 19.

We assign students routes and bus stops based on their home addresses. Students should be at stops five minutes before the bus arrives. 

Changing Stops

A student should get on and off their bus at the same assigned stop each day. To keep students safe, state law requires school bus drivers to allow students to get on and off buses only at their assigned stops or schools.

If your child needs to get off at a different stop, you must make arrangements with the school's main office. For example, your child may need to get off at a different stop for after-school child care. Your school office will coordinate with the Transportation Department.

Special Stop Requests

We review exceptions to assigned stops on a case-by-case basis. We ask that you fill out a transportation request if you:

  • Live outside your school’s boundaries
  • Have a child who wants to ride with their special needs sibling
  • Have a child or sibling of a child in our Highly Capable program
  • Want your child to ride a bus other than the one assigned to them

We will assign all Highly Capable program students routes by the first day of school. We will notify you if we have approved or denied your request beginning October 1 after all programs have begun. Please understand that more students ride buses after the first few weeks of school. We need to ensure we have space for all existing eligible riders before we assign new riders.

How We Make Routes

If you cannot find your route, please call the transportation department at 360-662-8800.

We check traffic patterns, lighting, the amount of space on road shoulders and other criteria to find safe bus stop locations. We do not stop at businesses. We follow state law and only provide transportation from home to school and back.

Please be patient as bus routes settle during the first few weeks of school. We adjust routes and times as the number of students on our buses change. Families sometimes choose to start or stop riding the bus after the school year starts. Our online route finder has the most up-to-date information.
