For several years, the EUSD Board has elected to not increase bus pass fees in the interest of providing an affordable service to families. Families with three students purchasing annual passes will receive a 50% discounted price for the third child. There will be no charge for additional children over the third child.
Credit card payments are available for one time payments in full, and Visa, MasterCard and Discover are
accepted. If you would like to use this option, there is a form included in the bus pass application. Please
note that credit card information may not be exchanged over the phone.
If you are applying for a free bus pass you must also complete the separate application for free transportation and submit all required documentation. The Eureka USD uses the Income Eligibility Guidelines from the California Department of Education to determine eligibility for free bus passes, so an application for Free/Reduced Lunch Eligibility must also be submitted through the Nutrition Services Program. A free bus pass may not be approved if the required documentation is not provided. The District does not have a program for reduced price bus passes, but does provide discounts for families.
Please refer to the Procedures section for more information about our Transportation application and policies. We strongly encourage parents to take the time to discuss applicable rules with your children to ensure a successful and safe experience on the bus. Questions may be directed to the Transportation Office at 916-774-1231.
