Transportation Guidelines

Transportation may be available for students who live in the City of Saint Paul. Eligible students are assigned to a bus stop based on their home or daycare address.

 

Pre-K: School bus transportation is available for students who live more than one-half mile from the school. For the morning Pre-K program, students are picked up at group bus stops; drop-offs are at or near the student’s home. For the afternoon Pre-K program, students are picked up at or near the student’s home; drop-offs are at group bus stops.

 

1-5: School bus transportation is available for students who live more than one-half mile from the school. This guideline includes K-5 students who attend K-8 schools.

 

6-12: School bus transportation is available for students who live more than one mile from the school. This guideline includes 6-8 students who attend 6-12 and K-8 schools.

 

Special Education: An Individualized Education Program (IEP) must identify each student’s transportation needs. Parents can talk with their child’s IEP team for additional information about transportation. In most cases, students who receive special education services follow the transportation guidelines listed above.

 

Please note: If you apply to a school outside your Area, Community School Zone or designated magnet Area, you will need to sign a transportation waiver acknowledging that bus transportation is not available and that you will transport your child to and from school. Call the Student Placement Center at 651-632-3760 for more information.

 

Metro Transit

Students in grades 9-12 at Creative Arts Secondary, Gordon Parks High School and Johnson Senior use Metro Transit instead of school buses to get students to and from school. Contact the listed schools for more information.
