After submitting the bus school application, an approval request is automatically created and assigned to the other guardian of the child (not the one submitting the application). The other guardian can then connect to the parent portal with his/her personal system account, and accept or reject the submitted enrollment application for the child. 

Q: What do I need to select in the school bus application?

A: First of all you need to select if you want to use the school bus services or not.

In case you select not to use the bus services, you don’t need to do anything else – just submit the application.

If you select to use the bus services, you must select one or both the desired destination(s). For each destination, you must select one of the available bus routes and optionally a desired bus stop.

Q: Do I need to select both school bus destinations?

A: If you select to use the bus services, you must select one or both school bus destinations (Arrival, Departure) by clicking the corresponding option. For each destination, you must select one of the available bus routes and optionally the desired bus stop from the available bus stops for the selected bus route.

Q: My bus stop is not available, what do I select?

A: For each destination, you first select one of the available bus routes according to the description and your desired bus stop location. From the list of the available bus stops for the selected bus route, you can search your preferred bus stop location from the description. 

If you think that your bus stop is not found in the list, you can either try a different bus route selection or you can click the option “Can’t find my bus route stop”. After that you will be able to submit the school bus application.

Q: Save and Submit options are not available in the school bus application

A: This happens if you haven’t selected all the necessary information in the school bus application, for example use or not use bus services, one or both bus route destination(s), bus route for checked destination and bus stop or “Can’t find my bus route stop” in case you don’t find your preferred bus stop
