Visit School Finder to see which schools serve your area. Transportation may be available for students who live in the city of Saint Paul and if:

  • Your home or daycare address is within a school's designated Area (A-F1/F2). Daycare information must be updated every school year. Please note that community schools, regional magnet schools and district magnet schools have different attendance Areas.
  • Your student is in a pre-kindergarten program. For the morning Pre-K program, students are picked up at or near the student's home, drop-offs are at group bus stops.


Transportation Guidelines

Students eligible for transportation will be assigned to a bus if they are in:

  • Grades PreK through 5 and live more than one-half mile from the school. This includes K-5 students who attend K-8 schools.
  • Grades 6-12 and live more than one mile from school.


NOTE: Families will need to transport their children to schools if they are not eligible for transportation based on these guidelines. A Transportation Waiver must be filled out and returned to the Student Placement Center if you wish to provide your own transportation.  Call the Student Placement Center at 651-632-3760 if you are unsure about your child's eligibility for bus transportation to the school of your choice.
