School Bus Information
Request for Alternate Route
Please note, if you are eligible for transportation First Student will assign students a bus route to and from their verified primary address of residency. To request a permanent change to your child's primary bus route, please contact First Student directly by calling 816-359-4560 or emailing Route Information Email.
If your child splits care between parent homes or goes to a sitter/daycare for before or after school care within current enrolled school boundaries please use the alternate route application link below. Please note, if the alternate address provided is within the walk boundary First Student is unable to provide a bus.
All approved alternate route requests expire at the end of each school year. A new request is required for each summer school session and every subsequent school year. No alternate route requests carry over to the next school session.
