Steps in the Pay & Ride process

  1. This spring, the district will be emailing K-12 Pay & Ride applications to families.
     
  2. Families complete one application per child.
     
  3. Families return applications and make payment before the first deadline, which is usually one month after applications were first distributed.
     
  4. Applications returned after the first deadline will incur a $50 late fee. 
     
  5. Applications returned after the second deadline, typically mid-June, will not be processed until October. The district will notify families whether any seats have become available on a first-come, first-served basis.
