Submitting complete applications by July 19, 2017, will ensure bus passes will be available at your child's school on Class Assignment Night or Orientation Night (the evening before school starts). Beginning on the first day of school, bus passes will be distributed as available to the students by the bus drivers on the assigned routes.
In the Eureka Union School District we believe that we offer the safest, most economical and environmentally friendly way to transport students to school. We take pride in the quality service that we have been able to provide. We also feel that it is a primary solution to mitigating the traffic congestion in our community, especially at our school sites. Lowering the number of vehicles around our schools decreases the likelihood of an accident and decreases the amount of exhaust that the children are exposed to at school.
Currently we transport approximately 1,200 students. We hope to increase the percentage of students who ride the school buses. For the past several years, the EUSD Board has chosen to not increase the bus pass fees in order to maintain the service at an affordable price for families.
The costs of providing transportation continue to grow beyond what the state provides in direct funding for the program. Because of this, many school districts throughout the state have chosen to restrict routes or fully eliminate the service. We continue to work to find ways to reduce costs. We also work to generate additional revenue by applying for grants and providing service to other entities. If you would like more information on how we might serve your organization, please contact the Transportation Department.
You will find information regarding the application for school bus transportation on this webpage.
