Bus Transportation

New School Year

The new school year is about to begin and children will be walking to school, riding the bus and riding bikes. Please drive safely near school and school bus stops. Please be respectful of parking restrictions and be extra careful when dropping off and picking up your children at school.  Thank you!

Bus Company Suggests 10 Minute Window

First Student urges students to arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the approximate scheduled pickup time.  The bus stop arrival time provided to District 205 families is an estimate and not a perfect measurement. There is a 10 minute window either side of the approximate time of arrival, depending on traffic and weather conditions.


Bus transportation is available to students residing at a distance of 1.5 miles or more from school, measured by the shortest and safest walking distance between home and school.  Elmhurst 205 uses a specialized transportation software with maps from the County to determine walking distance.  Students are also eligible for free transportation if their walking route includes a hazardous condition or crossing, as determined by the Illinois Department of Transportation.

Regular bus transportation is provided through a contract with First Student of Villa Park.  Transportation for students with IEP's requiring special bus arrangements is provided by Cottage Hill Transportation Co.

Parents who have questions or concerns regarding bus routes, problems at bus stops, or student discipline on the bus should contact the student's school principal to discuss.
