PUSD Transportation Department

Welcome to the Placerville Union School District Transportation Department.  We are here to help you with your transportation needs for the school year! Our staff is dedicated to providing our students with a safe, dependable, positive mode of transportation everyday. 

Ready to sign your children up for the bus? Here's how it works...

Transportation Application
We require an application filled out every year, whether your student has ridden before or not. We must have an application on file prior to your student riding the bus. You can fill out an application online or in person in our office. Only one application needs to be completed per household.

 Transportation Application - English

Transportation Application - Spanish

Bus Pass Picture
We will need to take a picture of your child for their bus pass. If you can't bring your child with you, we can either use their school photo from last year (if available) or you can submit a picture by email.

Please email pictures to: afreitas@pusdk8.us

Kindergarten / TK Riders
If you have a TK or Kindergarten student please fill out our walk slip that will determine if your child can walk home from the bus stop in the event that no one is there to pick them up.

Form:   Kindergarten/TK Walk slip

Payment for bus fees are due before your student can ride the bus. We provide multiple payment options:

Pay in Person
You may bring cash or check to our office. We do not accept card payments in our office.

Pay by Mail
Send checks to our office: PUSD Transportation, 2877 Schnell School Rd., Placerville, CA 95667

Make checks payable to PUSD. Please include child's name on the check.

Free / Reduced Buss Fees
Eligibility for free or reduced bus fees must be determined in person in our office. You will need to complete a free/reduced bus fees application (linked below) in addition to the regular application. You will also need to bring proof of income with you so we can see if you qualify for free or reduced transportation. If you received a food service letter for the current school year that states you will receive free/reduced food service, you can bring that with you instead. It will automatically qualify you for free or reduced transportation.

Form:  Free and Reduced Bus Fees Application

Reduced Buss Fees
Reduced fees cannot be paid online. Please bring cash or check to our office to pay for reduced fees. You may also send a check by mail.

One-Way Tickets
If occasional bus rides are needed aside from having a regular bus pass, one-way tickets can be purchased for $1 each. Your student will need to present the ticket to the driver each time they ride the bus. One-way tickets can be purchased in our office or in the school's office. We do still need an application filled out if your student is riding with tickets.

Bus Pass Replacements
If your student's bus pass gets lost or damaged, we can issue a replacement. The first replacement is free. Each additional replacement will cost $5.
