Eligibility

Bloomington Public Schools provides transportation to the following resident students:

  • Elementary students in kindergarten through grade 5 that reside in the school’s attendance area and live at least .5 miles from school.
  • Secondary students in grades 6 through 12 that reside in a school’s attendance area and live at least 1.25 miles from school.

If your child lives in the walk area – less than .5 miles for elementary and less than 1.25 miles for grades 6-12 – your child may be eligible for busing through our Pay to Ride program. Students may be able to use the nearest established bus stop outside the walk area of the school once payment has been received.

Stops

  • Elementary (K-5)—Generally, stops will be located at the intersection closest to the center of the geographical location of students who will use the stop.
  • Secondary (6-12)—Generally, students will walk from residences on secondary roads to meet buses on primary roads.

Special Services

The school district provides transportation for special education students according to the child's Individual Education Plan. If you have a child with special needs requiring transportation different from the regular bus services, please work with your child's special education case manager or call our Transportation Office at 952-681-6300.
