The Bus Schedules have been posted.  Please see Bus Schedules under General Information, below.

The 2021-2022 Bus Pass Sales Window is Still Open for Linda Vista and San Joaquin.

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

Saddleback Valley Unified School District offers limited general education busing to specific school sites.  Annual bus pass sales began May 20, 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
