REQUESTS TO RIDE - CURRENT BUS STUDENTS

REQUEST TO RIDE AN ALTERNATE ROUTE

Bus-registered students are entitled to board an alternate bus with parent and school authorization.  Please email your written request to schoolbus@westmountcharter.com for approval a minimum of 48 school hours before the date on which your student plans to ride the alternate bus.  The Request to Ride an Alternate Route form will then be completed and emailed to you for your students to carry with them.  Students in grades ECS through grade nine require parent authorization via email before a permission slip will be granted.  High school students may request the form independently without parent authorization.

Permission will be granted if there is room on the bus and if sufficient notice has been provided.   The student must present the authorization form to the driver upon boarding. The bus will not be delayed if the student does not have proper authorization to board.

If you are planning to move during the school year and require access to a different route, please provide a written request to Transportation Services a minimum of 1 week before you plan to access a different route. Please review the bus routes posted on the school website for all stop locations. Changes can be accommodated so long as there is room available on the bus required.  

PARENT REQUEST TO RIDE

A parent wishing to ride the bus must also receive permission from the school.  Please email your written request to schoolbus@westmountcharter.com for approval a minimum of 48 school hours before the date on which you plan to ride the alternate bus.  The Parent Request to Ride form will then be completed and emailed to you.  This form must be presented to the driver upon boarding.  A bus will not be delayed if the parent does not have the proper authorization to board.

OCCASIONAL STUDENT RIDERS

Westmount Charter school is no longer offering the Occasional Bus Pass program as many of our buses are full with regular riders and cannot accommodate occasional riders at this time.
