North Shore Transit


Golf School District 67 provides a fee-based transportation option for families. The transportation fees are established and subsidized by the Board of Education to make the cost manageable for District parents. Maintaining a level of safety is a high priority and is the responsibility of all students, parents, school staff, bus contractors and drivers. The District contracts solely with North Shore Transit for transportation service.

Bus Passes
Bus passes are required for all District 67 students to use on the regular morning and afternoon bus routes.

  • Bus passes must be carried at all times and be shown upon request.
  • Replacements for lost bus passes may be picked up at the district office for $5.00.

All children who ride the bus daily, on a field trip, or activity bus must abide by the following rules:

  • Student must sit in their assigned seat at all times.
  • Children are to remain in seats at all times.
  • No wrestling, pushing, or shoving on the bus, at the bus stop, or on the schoolyard where the children board buses.
  • No food or drink of any kind is to be consumed on the bus.
  • Nothing is to be thrown out of the bus windows.
  • Nothing is to be thrown on the bus or at the bus stops, including snow.
  • Windows are not to be opened by the children. The bus driver will see to it that the bus is adequately ventilated.
  • No child is to put his/her hands, arms, or head out the windows.
  • Talking to the person next to you is permitted but shouting on the bus is forbidden. No one is to shout out the windows.
  • Rude, discourteous and annoying conduct and other behavior negatively affecting the safety, well-being and the rights of others will not be tolerated.
  • The driver is in full charge of the bus, and must be obeyed.

Hynes Kindergarten students must have a parent/guardian waiting for them at the designated bus stop.

For the safety and security of students and maintenance of appropriate discipline, buses are equipped with video and audio recording devices. All children riding the bus are subject to being recorded at any time. The district reserves the right to use the recordings in any disciplinary hearing or decision. In unforeseen or extenuating circumstances, the principal reserves the right to, at her discretion, remove a child from the bus for extended periods beyond those identified above.

Bus Routes
In an effort to create and sustain an efficient transportation program, bus routes are created at the beginning of the school year and do not change.

For safety reasons, students may not ride a bus to which they are not assigned. Students will only be picked-up and dropped-off at their assigned stop. Transportation to and from the homes of friends is a parent's responsibility. The school will not take educational time to make busing arrangements.

Bus Schedules
Buses will run as close as possible to the provided schedules. However, a route may occasionally run late due to weather, traffic or maintenance difficulties.

  • In the event of a significant delay, the District Office will notify families of any changes via phone and email blasts. The bus will continue to make every stop, regardless of time.
  • In order to provide consistent and timely services, students must arrive at their designated stop at least 5-10 minutes before the scheduled pick-up and at least 10 minutes past the estimated arrival time.
  • Drivers will not wait for students who are not standing at their designated stops. The drivers are instructed to pick up and discharge children at their designated stops only. This is mandated by state law.
