When you submit your information, it will search the map information. If your address cannot be located, it may give a list of possible options to select from and you can rerun the search.
 
If it tells you that the Home address could not be located and the address format is correct, your address may be outside the Union District. Contact your child’s school or the Enrollment Center for clarification.
 
If your address is found, you will get a page giving you the name of the school of attendance, bus status (ride or walk), the distance from the address to the stop (or school if a walk area), the stop location and the bus number and time. The bus number is usually the same AM and PM.
 
No afternoon return time is given due to the number of factors that may affect it.  As a general rule, your student should be home 30 to 35 minutes after their school’s release time.
 

Bus Passes

Union SchoolsThe primary purpose of Union Schools bus service is transportation for eligible students to and from home.  Therefore, students are expected to ride their neighborhood bus each day to and from school and get on and off at the designated stop closest to their home.

Students who wish to ride a bus other than their neighborhood bus must obtain a Bus Pass.  To request a bus pass, please email buspass@unionps.org with the following information:

  • Student name
  • Student school
  • Student grade level
  • Parent/Guardian name
  • Parent/Guardian phone number
  • Home address
  • Reason for request
  • Destination address

Once all the information can be verified and if space is available on the desired route a reply email will be sent to you.  This process usually takes about 72 hours.  Students may not ride the desired route until the driver is in possession of the bus pass.

Students who are new to a bus route and who intend to ride that bus continually should obtain a bus pass from their principal who will indicate on the pass that the student will ride the bus on a regular basis.  This will notify the driver that the student is a permanent addition to the bus and avoid confusion the first time the student attempts to ride the bus.


Ice Route Information and Road Conditions - Download South Alternative Stops

Recorded Information Line - 918-357-7065

Each winter, the Union Public Schools transportation department is charged with developing routes on which school buses may travel safely during inclement winter weather. While most areas of the district have only minor weather-related problems, the area bounded by Yale and Sheridan and between 76th and 91st Streets require alternate stop locations.

Alternative bus stops may be called into use when weather conditions are such that school will go on as scheduled, but because of snow or ice, the hilly roadways in the area become dangerous requiring drivers to use arterial streets instead. Students living in this area have received maps listing the alternate stop locations for their bus. A copy of these alternate stop locations is also available at each secondary school and Darnaby Elementary. Other elementary schools’ bus routes are not in the affected area.

Students living within the affected area will be notified via the Connect Ed messaging system when alternate stop locations will be used. 

Please check local media broadcasts for updated weather information relating to closings. Parents may also call the Union Public Schools Recorded Information Line (918-357-7065) for school closing information.
