Our mission is to safely transport passengers in an efficient manner to and from all learning experiences. To fulfill our mission we will provide professionally trained experienced employees, using quality well-maintained vehicles and staying current with all laws and safety standards. Fundamental to our mission are effective communications, teamwork, professional and progressive attitudes, openness to change and mutual respect for all.
Because the State of California has ruled that transportation for regular education students is not an integral part of the education process and therefore does not fully reimburse school districts for this expense, the Poway Unified School District offers transportation services for regular education students on a fee basis only. The current charge for a full year-round trip bus pass is $625. Semester-only passes are available at a reduced fee. Over the past 20 years, the parents of our District have contributed a total of more than $20 million to ensure that they continue to have access to home-to-school transportation for regular education students.
Bus pass application notices are mailed to the parents of known eligible students mid-summer to prepare for the upcoming school year. Applications are processed and bus passes are issued in time for school to start at the end of August.
An Adobe Acrobat version of the current bus pass application is available on this web site. Parents may print the application at home and mail it to our office.
Any questions about eligibility for transportation services or bus pass processing should be directed to either the transportation representative at your child's school or to the Fees for Transportation Services Coordinator at 858-748-0010 extension 2061.
