Bus Registration Information
Parents still need to register for BUSING by July 15; NOT automatically enrolled!
Accounts do NOT automatically roll over, so register for busing by July 15!
Whether your child previously rode the bus or not, the deadline to register for busing to and from Bismarck Public Schools is July 15 if you would like your child(ren) to ride on the first day of school, which is Tuesday, Sept. 2.
If your child previously rode, you received an email with a handy link to register. If not, go to www.bismarckschools.org under Transportation on the left or call 701-323-4499.
If you register AFTER that time it may take up to 30 days before they can ride as our contracted vendor, Harlow's, needs time to set up routes, line up buses and drivers, and send schedules to parents who have already registered.
NOTE: The Bismarck School Board approved busing for all elementary students who live beyond a half mile from their school, so some students at Pioneer, Roosevelt and Saxvik will now qualify for busing. Letters will be sent with more information, or call 701-323-4499 after June 15.
