How do I register for bus transportation? 


How do I sign up for an Alternative Address or if my child attends St. Pats or Trinity? 

Students who attend Hudson School District should only use this alternative form if bus transportation is needed for a location other than the child’s primary/family 1 address in Skyward Family Access (second family household or daycare). All private school students must complete this form if bus transportation is needed.


How do I communicate changes related to my child and school school bus transportation? 

Throughout the year, you may need to change the transportation information that has been shared with the School District. Families are asked to communicate changes in a timely manner to help the School District ensure efficient routing and transportation of students.

  • Transportation changes are likely to include the following situations:
    • You requested bus transportation when you registered your child, and  your child was eligible for transportation, but your child no longer reds the bus to or from school.
    • You did not request a need for transportation when you registered your child, but now your child needs to ride the bus to or from school.
    • The location where your child is to be picked up or dropped off is changing.
    • Your child stopped riding the bus earlier in the year, but now needs to start riding the bus again.
    • You have a change in address.

What if I have a transportation change after August 1 OR during the school year?

Families who have completed registration, but need to make a change to the bus transportation information submitted as part of registration, will need to submit a Transportation Change Request Form (click here).

  • Please Note:
      • Any changes submitted after August 15 may not be honored during the first two weeks of the school year. This allows the Transportation Department to finalize bus routes and provide all families with accurate pick-up and drop-off times for the first two weeks of school.
      • Address Changes — If families need to request a transportation change due to a new address, they must first reach out to their child’s school to update their address change in Skyward Family Access.

Is my child eligible for bus transportation to and from school?

Hudson School District eligibility policy:

  • Transportation will be provided for students in grades K-8 living one mile or more from the school they attend. Distance from the school is determined along the shortest route on a public roadway.
  • Transportation will be provided for students in grades 9-12 living two miles or more from the school they attend. Distance from the school is determined along the shortest route on a public roadway.
  • Only one pick-up and one delivery location within your child’s school attendance area is permitted unless the child legally resides at two parental households within the School District’s boundaries.
  • Childcare must reside within your child’s school attendance area.
  • Children with boundary exceptions are not eligible for transportation.
  • All special needs transportation will be arranged with the child’s teacher through the IEP process.

How are bus stops and routes determined?

Bus stop placements are determined by the Transportation Department and are based on established criteria.

    • Current riders may or may not be assigned to the same stop used in previous years.
    • Riders will be assigned a bus stop determined by one address in the AM and one address in the PM.
    • Riders are required to use the assigned neighborhood or residence bus stop. Riders may not board or exit the bus at a school building other than the one the rider attends.
    • Routes are finalized in mid-August.
    • We do not guarantee seating space on school buses for a student who does not or will not regularly need transportation services for extended periods during the school year.

Where can my child get on the bus in the morning and get off the bus in the afternoon?

The School District determines the address of all bus stops for AM pick-up and PM drop-off.

  • Neighborhood or Residence Bus Stops: Students will only be picked up and dropped off at their assigned neighborhood bus stop. Riders are required to use their assigned neighborhood or residence bus stop. Riders may not board or exit a bus at a school building other than the one the Rider attends.
  • No School Bus Transfers: School buildings will not be used as bus stops except Hudson Middle School for High School transfer Riders. All other Riders will be required to get on and off the bus at their School District assigned neighborhood or residence bus stop.
      • Example (Applies to All School Buildings except High School students transferring at the Middle School): A parent who has a Middle School child and a transportation eligible child who attends EP Rock will NOT be allowed to drop off their Middle School child at EP Rock. The Middle School child must board the bus at their identified neighborhood bus stop.

If my child attends childcare, will the School District provide transportation for my child between school and our childcare provider?

  • Childcare Transportation Eligibility is determined by the location of the childcare center and not the home address of the child.
      • Childcare Located Inside the Walk Zone: If the childcare address is inside of the identified walk zone for the school your child attends, the School District will not provide transportation to or from the childcare location regardless of your child’s home address.
      • Childcare Located Outside the Walk Zone: If the childcare center has an address that is outside the identified walk zone for the school your child attends, the School District will provide transportation to or from the childcare location that is in your child’s school boundaries based on your child’s home address.

Can a child who belongs to two primary households, where one address is INSIDE the walk zone and the other address is OUTSIDE the walk zone, still receive School District transportation?

A child may receive School District transportation to and from the address OUTSIDE of the walk zone, but will not receive transportation to and from the address INSIDE the walk zone.


When will I receive bus route information for the upcoming school year?

Families can typically view bus route information in Skyward Family Access or the Traversa Ride 360 app in mid-August 2024. For the 2023-2024 school year, bus route information can only be viewed in the Traversa app.


When will my child receive a bus scan card for the upcoming school year?

    • Bus cards are distributed at school open house events. Students must have their cards to scan in order to ride the bus.
    • If your child loses their bus card, contact the Transportation Department. The School District will replace the first lost cards, any additional lost cards will cost families $5.

What is the School District’s inclement weather/poor driving conditions plan?

The School District has identified areas throughout the area that are particularly challenging for buses when driving conditions are poor and unsafe. Families living in these areas will be given alternate pick-up or drop-off locations in the event of inclement weather. Families will be contacted through the School District’s emergency message system if they are to use their alternate bus pick-up or drop-off locations.

  • The decision to use alternate bus pick-up or drop-off locations is usually made by 5:30 AM for morning routes or by 12:00 PM for afternoon routes.
