For many students, riding the bus is a safe way to get to school on time. Buses also provide riders with opportunities to do schoolwork; buses now feature a managed Wi-Fi network so that students can use their district-issued iPads while they’re on the road.
In general, students who live one mile or farther from the school but within Bay’s boundaries may ride the bus. Contact the school office to begin riding.
Need to ride a different bus temporarily? Change routes or stops? Inform the school office. A note is required to ride with a friend.
Students in the ACES program who live outside of Hudson’s Bay’s boundaries are bused from their home bus stop to their neighborhood high school and then transported to Bay in the morning. At the end of the day, they are bused from Bay back to their neighborhood high school and are responsible to get home on their own.
Hudson’s Bay students are eligible for Youth Opportunity Passes that let them ride all over C-TRAN’s local service area for free and access the Marshall and Firstenburg community centers at no cost. Students must have parent or guardian consent to receive passes. Consent forms are available in Bay’s FCRC, as well as online.
Tips for riding the bus
Be ready on time
Arrive at the bus stop five minutes before pickup. This will help the driver stay on schedule and let everyone arrive at their destination on time.
Wait until the bus has completely stopped and cross only in front of a bus, never behind. Stay sitting while the bus is moving.
Keep pets and objects that could be dangerous at home. Don’t eat food or drink beverages on the bus; others may have allergies.
Listen to the driver
Bus drivers work to keep everyone safe. Always follow the driver’s instructions to help him or her get you to your destination.
Keep conversations at a low volume to allow the driver to concentrate. Respect the rights and property of others at all times.
