Registration for 2023-2024 Bus Routes

Hello Tumwater Families.

As parents are registering their students and/or preparing for the next school year, Transportation would also like to prepare for next school year’s bus routes.  We will begin receiving requests on March 1, 2023.  Transportation request forms will only be required for the following (this is a change from last year):

  • New students
  • Students with a change of address
  • Students with a new or different alternate stop
  • Students needing transportation to/from more than one household
  • Students moving up from elementary school to middle school

It may take up to five days to assign or create a bus stop.  In order to provide your child with transportation, it is necessary to have accurate information.  Your address and phone number must be current in Skyward for us to route your student.  If you need to update your information, please contact your school before submitting a request for transportation. 

We are requesting that families use the online request form, Transportation Request Form

Enter your student’s information, including any need for an alternate pick-up or drop off location.  In the “Notes or Comments” section, type “Fall 23-24,” then select “submit” to send your form directly to Transportation.

If families are unable to access the online form, they may request a paper copy from their school or contact Transportation at 360-709-7700 to request a form be sent to you by email.  Please note that a paper copy may take longer to process.           

The earlier Transportation has all requests, the sooner we can get route information to families and schools.

Warm regards,

Tumwater School District Transportation Team
