Bus Passes

The District does not generally provide transportation to high school students. Rather, the District and City of Madison work cooperatively to ensure that Madison Metro Transit routes are available to students as a primary means of transportation. District-provided Madison Metro bus passes are available for students who:

  • Reside within the boundaries of the school attendance area
  • Reside more than one and one-half (1.5) miles from their attendance area school.
  • Have demonstrable financial need, including qualifying for the Free & Reduced Meal Program.

Students who qualify for a district funded bus pass can fill out this google form using their district google account to request one and then pick it up in their Neighborhood Office before school, during lunch, or after school during the first weeks of school.

Students can ride the bus for free during the first weeks of school until they receive their bus pass.
