Effective and efficient transportation systems affect everyone. Students, parents, teachers, staff, administrators, and school board members all take an active role in helping provide a safe and reliable school transportation system. The student transportation for Wilmette School District 39 is designed to offer safe, reliable, efficient, and economical service so students can devote their full attention to learning and growing.
By working together we can all help provide safe transportation for students.
Bus Registration 2017-18
Before registering, please read the District 39 Transportation Handbook and review it with your child. By completing the registration and fee payment, you are indicating that you have read and understand the District's transportation rules. For Kindergarten students, whether you are in AM or PM Kindergarten, please select "One Way (A.M)" if you only want the bus TO school. Please select "One Way (P.M.)" if you only want the bus FROM school. For Grades 1-4, you will have to make your annual selection on the PM routes for the 2:15 or 3:15 dismissal on Fridays.
Transportation fees for the 2017-18 school year will be $575.00 per rider for round-trip and $333.00 per rider for one-way transportation for registrations received by July 1st. If one-way transportation is selected, AM or PM must be designated. As in past years, students will receive route information and their bus pass in the mail two weeks before school begins.
Registrations received after July 1st will not be guaranteed a seat and assessed a late fee - $100 for round-trip, and $50 for one-way. Any registration received after July 1st will be accepted only if space is available. If space is not available, students will be placed on a wait list for the appropriate route. You will be notified by the transportation department if you are on a wait list.
Any students signing up after July 1st will be assigned to an existing route and stop. Additional changes or additions to bus routes cannot take place until September 29, 2017.
