General Education Transportation Policy

Board of Education Policy on General Education Transportation

The General Education Transportation Form for the 2017-2018 School Year is now available. For new students not yet in the system, you may go to the Educational Placement Office at 555 Franklin Street in person during office hours to pick up and return a transportation request form.

This online request form is for general education transportation services only. If your child is in special education and utilizes general education transportation services you need to fill out this request form. If your child is in a special education program and receives special transportation services please refer to your child's Individual Education Plan (IEP) for more information. You can also download this form as a PDF (ES, ).

The district offers limited general education transportation services to a limited number of SFUSD's elementary and middle schools. If your child is enrolled in one of the SFUSD schools receiving general education transportation services they may participate in transportation services, subject to availability. To ensure equitable access to this limited resource, you must request general education transportation services on behalf of your student(s). You can do this by: (a) filling out the online form provided below and submitting your request for services online; or (b) picking up a copy at the Transportation Department at 1000 Selby Street or at the Educational Placement Center at 555 Franklin Street (Room 100); or (c) by contacting the Transportation Department at (415) 695-5505 and asking them to mail you a copy of the bus schedule.

There is no guarantee that general education transportation services will be available, and all requests for service are subject to the SFUSD Transportation Department's review and approval. SFUSD reserves the right to change, reduce, allocate, or deny services or service routes, at any time, based on budgetary and other constraints. Parents will be notified in advance of any changes that impact their student's transportation services.

Since SFUSD may not be able to provide general education transportation services to all families who request services, we encourage you to review the following web pages to explore other transportation options:,,

The Transportation Department shall notify all families who requested service whether their request for transportation has been approved or denied. Please contact SFUSD Transportation Department at (415) 695-5505 if you have any questions.
