You may apply for a General Education bus pass at 540 Canyon Del Rey, Monterey to our Transportation building (Yellow Buses Parked Near Bldg). Busing is limited and we do not serve all school sites, so please call ahead for details.
We do offer free bus passes; please click here for the minimum requirements as specified by the state of California.
Special Education Bus Information
If your student has an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) that includes transportation as a necessary service and you are requesting busing for the 2024-2025 school year, please complete a Transportation Request Form (noted below).
It is extremely important to submit a form as early as possible to ensure your student receives busing and prevent extended delay. It normally takes 5 to 7 business days for normal processing and up to two weeks to route new students during peak times such as the beginning of the school year.
