REQUEST FOR BUS TRANSPORTATION PROCEDURE

  1. Please input requests on the AS 400 a minimum of 2 weeks in advance.

  4. Once a request is scheduled, someone must call Transportation to make any changes.
  5. If a wheelchair bus is needed, a wheelchair count must be specified.
  6. The bus driver will return their copy of the request to the transportation office for billing with the miles traveled and passenger count recorded.
  7. Schools are billed on the AS400 each week. Requests that have multiple schools will be billed to the requesting school, and then the requesting school may collect from the other schools.
  8. Please do not leave a cancellation of a bus on the voice mail. Talk to one of the transportation employees.
  9. When you order a Clear Creek bus, only type “Clear Creek” in the destination section, i.e., return trip is entered as “Clear Creek” return.
  10. Return time means the time you will return to the school not the time leaving the activity.

SUPERVISION

  2. Students are allowed to eat lunches on the bus during inclement weather. Please help have the bus returned as clean as it was at the beginning of the trip.
