QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

 

How do I register for the bus?

Go to the following online registration link - ONLINE REGISTRATION FORM

Do we pay monthly or does it need to be paid in full at the beginning of the year?

The $90 bus fee ($70 for PreK) will be applied to your RenWeb account each month.  For more information, contact Lori Bailey (lbailey@denverchristian.org).  

How do I sign up for text alerts regarding the DC Shuttle Bus?

To Join REMIND text service, download the Remind App. Select  Join a Class, Select Search for your class, Select Denver Christian School
Select Transportation, Select which route (text group) you'd like to join.

If we are running late can we have pick up or drop off at another location if needed?

Yes, as long as the location is on the same route.  Attendance will be taken once the student boards the bus, and it will be reported to the school office at the end of the route.

Do we have to sign up at the beginning of the school year or can we join the bus system during the year?

Yes, you can join during the year based on space availability. A notification has to be made by the 15th of the prior month to join or leave the bus program.  Contact transportation@denverchristian.org to join or leave the bus program.

Do students need to have a parent with them at all times?

We recommend that students stay with a parent until getting on the bus as the school’s supervision begins when the student boards the bus at the bus stop and ends when the student departs the bus at the stop.

What happens if I am late picking up my student from the bus stop in the afternoon?

The bus driver cannot wait for parents to arrive, so it is the parent’s responsibility to make arrangements if he/she is running late.  The bus driver/school’s responsibility ends when the student safely leaves the bus.

Do parents contact the driver if their children will not be riding that day?

No, drivers will leave each pick-up point at the appointed time with the riders who are there on time.  

Where will students meet to get on the bus at school?

Students load the busses up by the main lobby after school.

Are there any other forms that I need to complete?

Yes, below is the Bus program waiver and release of liability form.  This will be distributed to all bus program participants on their first day; this must be physically signed by a parent/guardian and returned to the bus driver.

Who should I contact with questions about the shuttle bus transportation program?

Direct any questions on the shuttle bus program, including route information to Brad Lanser at transportation@denverchristian.org.
