Register now if your student plans to ride the bus in the 2023-24 school year

If your student plans to ride the bus to and from school in the 2023-24 school year, please register each student using this online registration form.

 

  • For the 2023-2024 school year, the Olympia School District Transportation Department is moving to an online model for registering for bus services. In order to maximize our current resources and provide the most efficient transportation services, all students who will be utilizing transportation services during the 2023-2024 school year will need to be registered.
  • Once you fill out the registration form, Transportation dispatch staff will ensure your student is assigned to a bus route for the address you provided. Route information will be emailed out to families as soon as it is available.
  • Your child may be removed from the bus route if they do not ride the bus for more than a month consecutively during the school year. If they are the only student utilizing that bus stop, the stop will also be deleted. You will then need to re-register if you wish to start utilizing transportation again.  If you wish to have your child taken off the bus route, please call 360-596-7700. 
  • If your student qualifies for Special Needs transportation or McKinney-Vento transportation, their registration will be processed through the Student Support Department. Please do not fill out this form. Contact your child's teacher for more information, or call the Transportation Department at 360-596-7700.
