In order to provide transportation resources to as many students as possible, we have developed several services to assist.

    Standard Route Transportation

    Standard route (Traditional) transportation is the service that provides stop-to-school-to-stop transportation on the yellow school bus. Students who are routed to standard routes are done so using the eligibility requirements set forth by the School Board of Education’s Policy on transportation. Click above to find out more. Regarding students who become ill at school and need to return home prior to the normal dismissal time, that is the responsibility of the parent to provide that transportation home. That service level is not provided by Transportation.

    Enrollment Zone Transportation

    Enrollment Zone Transportation is designed to provide students with safe and efficient access to quality schools in their community, while also supporting SchoolChoice. Click above to find out more.

    Success Express Shuttle

    The Success Express Shuttle system is designed to help students access quality education in their communities. Students who live and attend a school in the Far and the Near Northeast Regions are eligible for transportation. Click above to find out more.

    DPS RTD Bus Passes

    RTD is offering all students free bus and train rides for the 2023-24 school year. They do not need a ticket.

    To board the bus or train, students will need to show one of the following items:

    • Current school ID
    • Valid government-issued ID
    • Alien registration/permanent resident card
    • Military ID/dependent card with DOB



    CommuteDPS was designed to provide students, families and schools with safe biking, walking and commuting tips and techniques. Click above to find out more.

    Special Education Transportation

    Our goal is to ensure a safe and pleasant trip to and from school for all students. This will enhance the positive learning environment for each student on a daily basis. For  students  identified  for  special  education services, the Individualized Education Program (IEP) designation will determine if your child requires transportation. Click here to view the Special Education and McKiney Vento Transportation Quick Guide for Schools.

    Multilingual Education Transportation

    When English language learners’ home schools do not provide Multilingual Education (MLE) services, students are eligible to attend ELA zone schools to receive services. DPS Transportation will support this effort by providing service for transportation-eligible students, who elect ELA services, to the corresponding zone school.
