Second Semester Pay-To-Ride

First Window: Open Registration December 3-January 9

Open Registration for second semester Pay-To-Ride transportation begins Monday, December 3 and ends January 9.  New this semester is the option to register and pay online via the district’s online payment system.  Paper application forms and check or cash payments will also be an option and will need to be processed at the District Office located at 306 SW School Street. Applications will no longer be accepted at the Durham building. For payment instructions and further information, please visit the Pay-To-Ride section of the district website.

As in the past, registration is first-come, first-serve depending on available capacity.  A $50 deposit will be required at the time of registration unless your student qualifies for free meals and a signed waiver of confidentiality is on file with the District. If you qualify for free meals & the waiver is on file, when checking out online, your amount due will show $0.00. Payment of the deposit does not guarantee your student a spot on the bus.  If there is not sufficient space on an existing route, the deposit will be refunded.  If your student is placed on a route, the amount due (less the $50 deposit) will be assessed to your student’s account and available for payment either online, by mail, or in person at the District Office or your student’s school. The remaining balance will need to be paid in full within three weeks of route notification from Durham.

Second Window: Open Registration Reopens January 15-30

Registration will re-open on January 15-30 for available seats only on current routes and will not be prorated. This will be available online. Paper application forms and check or cash payments will also be an option and will need to be processed at the District Office located at 306 SW School Street. Applications will no longer be accepted at the Durham building.
