FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: How do I sign my child up for the bus?A: We will need you to fill out an application, pay the bus fees, and bring your child in for a picture for their bus pass. More info about signing up can be found on our information page.
Q: Do I need to fill out an application this year if my child rode the bus last year?A: Yes, we need a new application filled out every year.
Q: My child is now in high school. Do I still come to your office to sign him/her up for the bus?A: No, we only provide busing for the schools in our district: Markham, Sierra, and Schnell. If you have a student that is attending high school, you will need to sign them up for a bus at the high school district transportation office at 4675 Missouri Flat Rd.

Q: What about band students that get transported from Markham to their school? What do I need to do?A: We need an application filled out if your student isn't a normal bus rider. We will issue special "band passes" for those students.
Q: What about Early Bird students?A: We pick up students for the Early Bird program during our Markham AM route. Give us a call to see if your child's stop is available.
Q: What if my child only needs to ride the bus for one day (i.e. going home with a friend)? Do I need to fill anything out?A: Yes, we still need an application on file before your child rides the bus, even if it's only for a day.
