Transportation News

All students are required to be signed up by families in order to use District-provided bus routes. The link is below. No registration is required for use of GMT’s public transit system. The transportation department staff will email families with the route, stop, and time details when students have been added to a bus route. Students who are signed up before August 12 will be guaranteed to be assigned to a bus route for the first day of school.

Sign-ups occurring later in the school year are added to routes in the order they are received. Families may add or change student transportation sign-ups at any time during the year using the same form. Every effort will be made to finalize transportation and communicate with families in a timely manner based on the demands of the department.
