Ride Wichita Transit to School

‚ÄčAlternative bus service for middle and high school students

Expand your school transportation options with Wichita Transit's pilot project to provide alternative bus service to middle and high school students for the 2017-2018 school year. Students can obtain a reduced fare bus pass to utilize all Wichita Transit fixed route buses, providing a convenient before and after school service to nearby neighborhoods not currently served by district school buses.

Service Type

Wichita Transit buses will pick up students at Wichita Transit bus stops. Buses will drop off students at or near participating schools in the morning. Transit buses will pick up students immediately following dismissal. Students participating in after school activities, or those attending schools outside of the pilot program service area may utilize the regular fixed route bus system for the same low price.
