• Welcome to the ISD 318 Transportation Department

    Our primary goal is the safe transportation of students to and from school.

    District 318 transportation is available to district students and includes transportation for:

    • YMCA Educare Program (before and after school)
    • Public Library Afterschool
    • St Joseph's School Age Care (SAC) Afterschool Program
    • RJEMS afterschool activities
    • GRHS/Reif afterschool activities

    The Transportation Department is committed to student safety. It is also important that parents assume a scope of responsibility at the bus stop, including getting children to and from bus stops.

    **NEW for 24-25 School Year** - ALL families needing district transportation will need to submit a new busing request form online.  NO previous busing information will be carried forward. 

    All students may now have just ONE pick-up and ONE drop-off location. This has changed from having multiple options in the past.  Busing requests must be completed online using the district website. 

    Please have your busing request filled out prior to July 5th, 2024 in order to ensure your request is processed for Fall transportation.  Requests received after this date will be processed, but busing cannot be guaranteed to be ready for the start of school. The Transportation department intends to have busing route and time information out to families by August 16th.
