A Message from TSD Transportation for 2023 School Year

  • Please click on Infofinder to search for your student's route information by address.
  • Tentative bus route information for the 2022-2023 school year is now available.  All routes are currently subject to change, as additional transportation requests are still being accepted and processed daily. 

Routes will be updated on the website each Friday evening through the end of September to reflect any additions or changes.  Please check back before school starts to confirm your student’s route information.  *Routes updated 8/26/2022

Tumwater’s Transportation Department is excited to announce the availability of a new digital Transportation Request Form for general education transportation. 

Each student wanting to utilize school bus transportation for the 2022-2023 school year will be required to complete a new Transportation Request Form.  This will be required yearly.  If your student does not need school bus transportation, then there is no need to submit a form.  We are asking that forms be submitted by Friday, July 29th for those students who are returning to or have already registered at a Tumwater School. 

Families registering students after July 29th may still submit a Transportation Request Form should they choose to utilize school bus transportation.

When completing a Transportation request Form, please answer all questions on the 1st page.  Please complete the sections regarding an “Alternative Location” (page 2 and 3) if your student needs to be picked up or dropped off someplace other than home (daycare, grandparent’s house, Boys & Girls Club, etc.)  If the sections regarding an “Alternative Location” (page 2 and 3) do not apply to your student, you may leave those blank.  Once all questions have been answered, please go to page 4 and choose “Submit.”  The Transportation Request Form will then go directly to the Transportation Supervisor and Routers.

The Transportation Department will contact families with bus route information as well as post general education routes on the Transportation web page prior to school starting in the Fall.

If you plan for your student to ride the bus, please fill out the bus transportation form and submit the form as soon as possible.  It may take up to five business days to process your request. If your child has special transportation as part of their education plan, please contact Special Services.

For any questions regarding transportation, please contact the Tumwater Transportation Department at 360-709-7700.

We look forward to transporting your students!

Warm regards,

Tumwater School District Transportation Team
