The Upper Arlington City School District offers transportation services to elementary and middle school students who live 1.25 miles or greater from their home school. Transportation is not provided for high school students. Transportation also may be provided to students with special education transportation needs.

The district owns and operates its own fleet of school buses and school transportation vehicles. Capacities range from 9 passenger vans to 71 passenger buses.

The number one goal of the department is to provide safe and efficient transportation for all students to and from school and school related activities.

2018-2019 Bus Routes

In an effort to provide parents and students with secure and accurate busing information, the district utilizes a Transportation Parent Portal.  This application will allow families who requested transportation to view transportation information including bus number with stop location and times.

To access the portal, please follow these instructions:
  1. Enter your user name, which is the student's name in the following format: firstname.lastname (for example, Jane.Doe).
  2. Enter your password, which is the student's birthdate in the following format: MMDDYYYY.
  3. After logging in, click on the STUDENTS tab located in the upper left-hand corner.
  5. A listing of students living in that home will appear. Click on each student's name to see his or her transportation information.

To access the portal, please visit

Busing begins for grades 1-8 on August 14.  Kindergarten busing begins August 17.  Please check the link a day or two before school starts to make sure that the information you have has not changed. It is important that you have your students at the stop five minutes prior to the scheduled pick up time.

If you have questions or concerns related to your student's transportation information or experience difficulty in accessing this information, please email   Please include your student's name and school in the subject of the message.   We will also need their grade, your address and any special transportation arrangements (i.e. day care) in the body of your message.
