The Transportation Department has announced its Home-to-School Transportation Program for the 2023-24 school year. Fee-based bus passes are required for all student transportation.

Due to ongoing state budget issues, TUSD has reduced its home-to-school transportation program for the 2023-24 school year. A majority of bus routes have been eliminated throughout the District. Transportation will be provided for Helen Estock, Guin FossLoma Vista, Columbus Tustin Middle School and Beckman High School. Please contact the Transportation Office for further information.

There are no proposed changes for Special Education transportation.
Refunds: Refunds are issued on a prorated basis from the date the bus pass is returned to the Transportation Office. Refunds are issued ONLY if you have moved out of the District or qualify for free or reduced lunch after paying the full fee. 

Pass Replacement/Changes: Replacement for lost pass: $24 (1st), $30 (2nd), and $35 (3rd). Change of stop: $30. Returned check fee: $46.

To register for student transportation or obtain bus pass applications, contact your local school or the TUSD Transportation Department. Completed applications should be mailed to the TUSD Transportation Department. Passes will be distributed in the order they were received.
