Is There an Age my Child Can be Let Off the Bus Alone?

Published January 14, 2019

There is no set age a child can be dropped off without a guardian present. We provide schools with a purple “Met at Stop” tag  for all new Kindergarten riders. The purple tag tells the bus driver someone must be at the stop to meet a child and can be used at any age. If you feel your child should be allowed off the bus without a guardian present, talk to your bus driver and operator to come up with a plan that works for your family. Ultimately, parents/guardians are responsible for their children’s safety going to or coming from the bus stop, even if the stop is at your home.

Stop Change Requests & Late Applications

Due to the volume of applications our office is receiving at this time of year, Tri-Board will begin reviewing Stop Change Requests after September 20th. This is so we can focus on processing applications for students who would otherwise not have transportation.

Families that do not want to use their current bus stop until its review, or have applied for transportation at the beginning of September, should  consider alternative means of transportation/travel for the first day(s) of school. We are currently processing regular applications received on September 14th. Bus companies require a minimum of 48 hours’ notice of new riders.

Elective Learning Program or Special Circumstance applications will take longer, as processing eligible students is our priority.
