How do I sign up for transportation?

Steps to receive transportation

  1. Please make sure your child is registered in Powerschool at the school level.  No students are allowed to ride unless the info in PS is correct. Write the student ID down in a safe place.
  2. Check here or download the Ride360 app to see if your child is assigned to a bus. If the address and stop is correct, you are finished.  If the info is incorrect or there is no info available, please fill out a transportation form located here.
  3.  After you have filled out the request form, go back to the Ride360 website or app to see updated route information. (updated route info may take up to 3 business days.)

There are several advantages to downloading the Ride360 app to access bus route info. Not only will it provide you with the bus information but you can live track the school bus your child is assigned to within the app. The transportation department utilizes the app to communicate with parents regarding bus changes/time changes. (When you are setting up the app for the first time, it will ask for the school your child attends. Please type in Greater Clark County Schools.)
