Transportation

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.

2022-2023 Transportation Information

The Upper Arlington Schools Transportation Department is looking forward to a great start to the 2022-2023 school year! Bus routes are now available in our new transportation platform, Traversa Ride 360, for any K-8 families who requested busing for the school year. 


Please note that the Transportation Department is continuing to refine bus routes, and there may still be slight changes in your child’s pickup or dropoff times. We encourage you to check the transportation portal again on Monday, August 15 to confirm these times for your families. We also ask that students arrive at the bus stop 5 minutes before their scheduled pickup time to ensure that our routes run efficiently.
