District 191 provides safe and efficient transportation to special education students, and regular education students who qualify:
- Grades K–5 students who live 1 mile or more from school
- Grades 6–12 students who live 1.5 miles or more from school
The walking distance is defined as the shortest distance from the child’s residence by public walkway, street or highway to the assigned entrance of the school the student attends as measured by the District’s computerized GIS map.

If your family lives in an area where school bus transportation is available but your child will not be using the bus to get to school, please let us know by filling out this form by Aug. 16, 2021.
Letting us know now will help us be more efficient in planning our transportation service, which means lower costs and fewer changes after the year starts. If circumstances change, you can always change back.
Families will receive yellow postcards in the mail the week before school starts. The postcard will contain the bus number, bus stop location, and time of morning pick up and afternoon drop off. Information is also available in ParentVUE.
A pay-to-ride option may be available for parents of students who don't qualify for transportation. The cost for the service, if it is available, will be $295.00 per student for the 2021-2022 school year.
Where is my bus?
District 191 uses a GPS tracking system that allows families to see where their student's bus is along the route and an estimated time that it will arrive at their stop.
