Bus Passes

The 2021-2022 Bus Pass Sales Window is Now Open for La Paz, Linda Vista, and San Joaquin.

The RSM buses are full.  Please complete an application to be placed on the waiting list.  

Confirmation & waiting list emails will be sent out by July 18.

Saddleback Valley Unified School District offers limited general education busing to specific school sites.  Annual bus pass sales begin May 20, 2021 and end June 18, 2021. Applications are accepted on a first come, first served basis.  The Transportation Department will make every effort to process each application and provide every student with a bus pass; however, our schools have limited bus seating capacity.  Students who do not receive a pass due to over-capacity will be placed on a wait list in the order received.

The bus pass application is online under Bus Pass Instructions and Application.  Payment is not required at time of application. Payment is required when your student is assigned to a bus.  Eligibility guidelines for a reduced or free bus pass are provided under General Information.

Application assistance for parents of Linda Vista and San Joaquin Elementary students is available from the school site. Please contact your school directly. 

Please review bus pass purchasing instructions and bus rules prior to completing your application.

If you have any questions please email


With the expansion of on-campus instruction, there will be more bus riders than we were able to accommodate during the hybrid learning model for COVID-19 safety purposes.  Until new guidelines are put in place, we will continue to transport students as safely as possible by requiring students to wear face masks, opening windows to provide air flow, and performing bus cleaning regimens between routes.
