Request Bus Service for an Ineligible Student

Oregon law and District policy determine transportation eligibility for your student. If you've received notice that your student is not eligible for transportation and would like further information, please review our Service Standards

Requests may be made for service beyond what is required by state law or District policy. It's important to note:

  • Transportation service requests may be submitted after July 1st for the coming school year
  • All requests will be processed in the order received
  • If approved, requests are only granted for one school year and must be resubmitted each subsequent year
  • If ridership of eligible students on the selected route increases during the school year, your student may lose ridership privileges

Approval is based on the following:

  • Available space on the bus route, after eligible students are accounted for*
  • Safe access to an existing bus stop (as determined by the Transportation department)

Important Update: Service Requests for Ineligible Students - October 5th, 2021

The Transportation Department is currently experiencing a significant shortage in school bus drivers that is impacting daily service.  To best meet our obligation to provide legally mandated transportation services to eligible students,  we are currently evaluating consolidation of  existing school bus routes.   For the duration of this shortage, we will be unable to approve “Space available” transportation to students who are ineligible for transportation service as defined on our service standards page (Service Standards - Beaverton School District).  We are unable to offer exceptions to ineligible students based on personal circumstances.

We appreciate your understanding during these challenging times.




Due to the increase in service requests related to the beginning of a new school year, notification of transportation assignments will not begin until October 1st. 


* Note that each bus and school level (elementary, secondary) have distinct rider limits.
