Buses

Welcome!

The Transportation Department oversees the safety of our most precious cargo – our students – making sure they are safe on the ride to school, home or school activity. The Transportation Department also wants students to be safe while they are waiting for the bus. Statistically, school buses are the safest mode of transportation to and from school.

Bus Passes

The primary purpose of the Union Public Schools bus service is transportation for eligible students to and from home.  Therefore, students are expected to ride their neighborhood bus each day to and from school and get on and off at the designated stop closest to their home.

Once all the information can be verified and if space is available on the desired route a reply email will be sent to you.  This process usually takes about 72 hours.  Students may not ride the desired route until the driver is in possession of the bus pass.

Students who are new to a bus route and who intend to ride that bus continually should obtain a bus pass from their principal who will indicate on the pass that the student will ride the bus on a regular basis.  This will notify the driver that the student is a permanent addition to the bus and avoid confusion the first time the student attempts to ride the bus.

Students who wish to ride a bus other than their neighborhood bus must obtain a Bus Pass. 

To request a bus pass, please email buspass@unionps.org with the following information:

  • Student name
  • Student school
  • Student grade level
  • Parent/Guardian name
  • Parent/Guardian phone number
  • Home address
  • Reason for request
  • Destination address
