Registration Information

We again ask families to register their DK-12 students to receive Northview Busing for the 2019-2020
school year. Whether you rode the bus in the past, or are new to the district, all transportation
requests must be submitted to the Transportation Department. Register before August 1st to
guarantee a spot on the bus first day of school! The form is accessible via our website,

Transportation

● One Stop Policy
Each student may have one permanent morning bus stop and one permanent afternoon bus stop (may
be different than the morning stop). Students are to ride only these assigned buses. This schedule
must be consistent.

● Bus Stop App
New for the fall – Parents and students can now easily access routing information on Apple and Android
mobile phones thru Traversa Ride 360. See real time bus stop information linked directly to the
Transportation office program via the web or the new mobile app. Sign in information will be shared in
August.

● Afternoon Shuttle to Highlands
In the past, Elementary students were able to get off at Highlands to allow parents one pickup location
for their DK-6 graders. To support our continued attempts to decrease the amount of elementary
students unsupervised at Highlands, this is no longer allowed. Highlands will not be considered a bus
stop. We are aware this may add logistic concerns for parents, but your students safety is our number
one priority.

● Out of District Students
Reminder that priority is made to in-district residence in regards to Northview busing. Requests for
transportation for out-of-district students shall be determined a minimum of 2 weeks after the start of
the school year. If eligible, and if space exists, we will assign your student to the closest in-district stop
available and it will be the parents’ responsibility to get the student to and from the bus stop safely. In
regards to students enrolled in child care within Northview, we will not be able to guarantee
transportation until we are certain room exists.

● Lost and Found
Last call for lost and found items. We will be donating all items on June 14.

● Bus Drivers Wanted
Want to get paid to drive your student to their athletic event or field trip? Consider joining the Northview
transportation team as a bus driver! Pay starts at $16/hr. Give us a call – we’d love to tell you about all
the benefits! 616.361.3480
