Forms & Resources
See helpful information below regarding Redmond School District’s (RSD) Transportation Services.
Please take a moment to review our Parent & Student Transportation Handbook. The handbook intends to provide parents with information and policy as it relates to their child getting to and from school.
For a new stop to be considered for the new school year requests must be reviewed by June first. Any request after June first will be reviewed and considered at a later date.
At the beginning of the school year, the Transportation Department begins processing Temporary Rider Permit requests on October 1 in the order the forms are received. This will allow all routes to stabilize for a better count of available seats for students requesting temporary riding privileges.
Thank you for your patience as the department works through this process in order to best serve our students.
Route Cancellation – Reimbursement
In October, we canceled two routes, Route 18 and Route 24, due to a shortage of drivers.
In order to assist those of you who now must make other plans for getting your students to school, we will reimburse $10 per day to families to support the cost of alternative means of transportation.
The reimbursement is only available for students eligible to ride these particular routes, on days they attend school. In the coming week, the district will provide families with more information, as well as a form that you must fill out in order to receive the reimbursement (one reimbursement per family).
Beginning in the 2021-22 school year, RSD will use a new parent app, Stopfinder. The all-in-one app allows parents and guardians to have the most accurate information about their students’ bus schedules at any time, from anywhere. Stopfinder also features a private messaging feature that will allow you to communicate directly with the RSD Transportation Department. To learn more about Stopfinder, go to https://stopfinder.com/parents/ or watch this video: https://mytransfinder.com//mytf/videos/Stopfinderapp.mp4.
You can also create GeoAlerts for your student, which will notify you when the bus has arrived or departed from any location on your student’s route.
The parent/guardian email addresses currently on file with the district will be used for Stopfinder setup. Please make sure your email address is updated in ParentVUE.
Stopfinder can be downloaded for free from the Apple App store or Google Play. Stopfinder will require an invite and registration through the district prior to accessing your student’s transportation schedule. You should have received a Stopfinder invitation at the start of the school year.
If you have issues with the app, please contact customer service at email@example.com or by calling 888-427-2403.
