Welcome to the Ludington Area Schools Transportation Department.  We take great pride in transporting such precious cargo every day.  Our mechanics and bus drivers work together keeping our buses safe and in flawless working condition.  We pride ourselves on timely arrival
and return of your students.  All students are required to be outside waiting for the bus at the bus stop 5 minutes prior to arrival.

If your child is going to daycare/friend/relatives before or after school and needs bus transportation, you must complete the Special Request for Transportation form and send it to the Bus Garage for processing.  Students will not be able to board buses if this form is not on file.  These forms are available at the Bus Garage, Central Business Office, Schools and at the above link.

BUS PASS – If your student needs to ride to a family/friend’s house, you must send a note with
your student who must obtain a bus pass from their school office. These passes grant us
permission to discharge your student at the location you are requesting. Please note: we can
only drop students at existing stops.
