How to Register for Bus Services:

Each year families are required to register their student bus rider(s). Bus registration is completed through the online registration process. If your transportation needs have changed since completing the 2015-16 registration process, please complete the online transportation form available here: https://secure.infosnap.com/family/actionforms.aspx. Requests for district provided special needs transportation must be made by district personnel. If you have questions about special needs transportation please contact your building principal.

Bus Transportation Fees:

To receive free bus transportation service from home to the school building, the primary home address must be located outside a one-mile boundary for elementary students or a two-mile boundary for secondary students. Distance to and from school is determined by Durham School Services’ GPS routing system. Students who qualify for the free or reduced lunch program may be eligible for free or reduced transportation pricing. If you have questions about bus transportation fees contact please Amy Patters at 515-987-5161 x4500 or apatters@waukeeschools.org.

Busing and applicable fees are determined by your primary home address:

  • Elementary: more than 1 mile from the school = free

  • Secondary: more than 2 miles from the school = free

Fees (students located inside one-mile or two-mile boundaries):

  • $280 per year, round trip, per child

  • $140 per year, one-way, per child

All transportation services are provided subject to the rules and regulations for school bus transportation by the Waukee Community School District. By registering your student, you acknowledge the applicability of those rules and regulations and agree to be bound by them. Transportation rules and regulations are available online in each student handbook here.

Please feel free to contact Durham School Services office at 515-987-2788 with questions about routes, distances or other busing needs. We look forward to providing transportation services for your student(s) this year.
