Bus Reimbursement

Families who provide transportation for their students will be eligible for reimbursement. 

Families who qualified last year will need to re-apply for the 2022-23 school year.

Our guidelines will remain the same:

Who is eligible for transportation reimbursement?

Transportation reimbursements are available to families of students in grades preK-12 and Transition Plus who transport their students to school rather than riding the school bus. 

High school students using Go To Cards from Metro Transit are not eligible for this reimbursement as the focus is on yellow bus transportation service. High school students using special education bus service, including students attending TAPP, are eligible for reimbursement.

What are the requirements to qualify for transportation reimbursement?

Proof of insurance and a valid driver's license are required. 

Once your family is approved for a transportation reimbursement, your student will be removed from their morning and afternoon bus stop and families will need to transport their students every day that school is in session. 

Why transportation reimbursement?

The nationwide shortage of bus drivers continues, including here at MPS, and the COVID-19 pandemic has only made it worse. Families who are able to transport their students to school free up some space on the bus for students whose families cannot provide their own transportation.
