School Bus Transportation

  • Use School Finder at spps.org/apply to see which schools serve your Area. Please note that community schools, regional magnet schools and district magnet schools have different transportation Areas.

Transportation Guidelines

  • Transportation may be available for students who live in the City of Saint Paul. Eligible students are assigned to a bus stop based on their home or daycare address.

    PreK-5: School bus transportation is available for students who live more than one-half mile from the school. This guideline includes PreK-5 students who attend PreK-8 schools.

    6-12: School bus transportation is available for students who live more than one mile from the school. This guideline includes 6-8 students who attend 6-12 and K-8 schools.

    Special Education: An Individualized Education Program (IEP) must identify each student’s transportation needs. Parents can talk with their child’s IEP team for additional information about transportation. In most cases, students who receive special education services follow the transportation guidelines listed above.

Metro Transit

  • Students in grades 9-12 at Creative Arts Secondary, Gordon Parks High School and Johnson Senior use Metro Transit instead of school buses to get students to and from school. Contact the listed schools for more information.
