Youth Transportation

No child will be transported unless a current Emergency Contact Form is on file with BATA. This applies to all children riding the bus.

Make sure your child has proper bus fare with them.

It is the parent's/guardian's responsibility to contact BATA regarding changes in your child's bus schedule. We cannot take transportation changes from your child.

Please schedule your child's rides at least 1 business day ahead of time. Parents/guardians who call in for their child's ride the same day their child's ride is needed, will be charged a same day fare.

Buses will arrive at the schools at dismissal time and depart seven minutes later.

BATA drivers ask that a wave at the door from an adult indicating someone is present is appreciated during drop offs for your child's safety.
