Knowing when and where each child gets on and off the school bus is vital. Every transportation-eligible student in DPS who rides a yellow school bus is expected to use their +Pass every day, no exceptions. For replacements or a temporary pass, please contact your school office or Transportation Services during the summer months.

Need a +Pass?

If your child needs a new or replacement +Pass, please submit your request with your school’s main office.



  • Peace of Mind and Enhanced Customer Service: Helps to answer parents’ questions about when and where their student gets on and off the bus.
