Pay Transportation

  • Eligibility 

    Students living less than two miles from school may apply for pay transportation service for schools that have bus service.

    Special Circumstance Transfers are based on specific criteria and transportation is not provided and is not eligible for Pay Transportation.

     

    Pay Transportation Form:  Applications are available here or at any FBISD Transportation Center. Applications may be submitted beginning July 15th.  Mail or drop the application off at any FBISD Transportation Center.  Schools cannot accept completed applications or payments.

     

    Service is dependent upon route availability and available space on the bus.  Request for service is on a first-come, first-served basis.  Parents will be notified if pay transportation service is available, bus stop and route information, and when service will begin by the second week of school.  At that time, if the terms are agreed to, payment for service will be expected within five days.  Fees are not pro-rated; all fees are due in full no matter when service begins or ends.

     

    Fee (per student) – Check, Cashier’s Check or Money Order only:

    • $200 (per Student) August – December
    • $250 (per Student) January – End of school year
    • $450 (per Student) School year

     

    Students on Free or Reduced Lunch (must provide proof):

    • $140 (per Student) August - December
    • $175 (per Student) January – End of school year
    • $315 (per Student) School year

     

    An invoice will be mailed in December for the Spring semester.  Transportation service will be cancelled if payment is not received by the due date noted on the invoice.

    Schools and bus drivers are not allowed to accept payments for service.
     

    Cancellation of Service

    Due to non-payment:  Service will be cancelled if payment is not received by the due date.  The student will not be allowed to ride the bus.  To resume transportation service, a new application must be submitted along with the payment attached.  Parents will be notified if pay transportation service is still available, bus stop and route information, and when service will begin.

    Voluntary cancellation:  No refund will be granted for unused months.  If you would like to discuss your cancellation for other reasons, please contact the Transportation Center that services your school.

    Non-Sufficient Funds:  Checks returned non-sufficient funds (NSF) are handled by Check Smart and subject to a fee of $30.00 plus applicable sales tax.  If a check is returned NSF, all future payments must be made by cashier's check or money order.
