Note- Please check your bus route information before applying for a ZPass or paying any transportation fees in Express Check-In to ensure transportation is provided from your home address to your school.  You can find this information here.  


*Be sure to review the following board policies on student transportation:  Student Behavior Policy,  Safety Policy,  Walk Zone Policy



If your child currently has a working Z-Pass card you DO NOT need to complete a new application. Please have your student continue using his or her current Z-Pass card.

All applications for ZPass cards must be completed through Express Check-In.  If you need to apply for a first time card, or a replacement card, please submit the electronic application online through your child's school link for Express Check-In or click here.  For assistance with Express Check-In please contact your school.  You will receive your card from your student’s bus driver within two weeks of completing your application.  Your child may ride in the interim and should be prepared to provide his/her name and/or student ID to the driver for manual entry.


Every student who rides a DCSD bus must be able to present their Z-Pass card and scan on and off the bus. Parents have the option to sign up for free notifications of when their student scans, the location, and the time.  You can find more information here at Z-Pass+.

Rides are billed at $0.50 each way on a quarterly basis.  You have the option to choose a yearly pass during Express Check-In for $150, and will be billed for this on the first quarterly statement. Yearly passes will save you close to $30.00 and provide unlimited rides for your student.
