BVSD Transportation

New Riders

Welcome to the Boulder Valley School District. We provide transportation to those registered students who are eligible as defined in BVSD Board of Education Policies.

Who is Eligible for Busing?

Eligibility is defined as:

  • Living at an address within the attendance boundary for your school of attendance.
  • Living outside the walk distance boundary defined for your school.
    • Walk distances are defined as the shortest street and/or walk path distance outward from the school.
    • Walk distances are defined by policy for different grade divisions as follows:
      • PK: 1.0 mi.
      • K-5: 1.5 mi.
      • 6-8: 2.0 mi.
      • 9-12: 2.5 mi.
  • Some special programs provide eligibility based on student needs and other criteria.


Space Available Busing

Students who are not eligible to ride the bus under board policy EEA, may apply to ride if there is space available on a bus. Applications are received during the current school year beginning July 1st through June 30th. Applications for the next school year will not be accepted before July 1st of that school year. Notification will be made on or about Sept.15. This allows the department to stabilize eligible pupil loads on buses to establish how many seats may be available. Not all students requesting space may be accommodated and approval to ride may be revoked at any time due to changes in student populations or other factors.  

Space Available Application

Where to Start?

1. Your School

The first place to check to see if there is bus transportation from your neighborhood to your school is with the office at your school. They have school bus route information and can provide stop locations, stop times, and route number information.

2. Our Terminals

If your student is newly registered within the last week or two, and their information has been entered into our Student Information System (Infinite Campus, which is also know as "IC") then the school may not have the specific information for your student. In this case, please call the Transportation Terminal that serves your geographic area:

Boulder Terminal

Serving the western portion of the district and the foothills.

Lafayette Terminal

Serving the eastern portion of the district, Superior, and Broomfield.

Nederland Terminal

Serving Nederland and the Peak to Peak, Hwy 72 corridors.

If your student is eligible for transportation and registered in the student information system (“IC”) terminal personnel can assign your student to a bus and provide the stop locations, times, and route number for your student’s services.
