The Shawnee Mission School District provides free bus transportation to students living 2.5 miles or more from the school in their attendance area. To receive free busing you must register with DS Bus Lines.

Students who live less than 2.5 miles from the school in their attendance area may pay to ride the bus in areas with established routes. The 2022-23 bus rate is $185.00 per student, per semester or $370.00 per student for the school year. Routes will be established annually based on interest and enrollment numbers. Routes will be built around those who have registered by July 22 for the 2022-23 school year. To pay for busing visit DS Bus Lines website. 

Families who pay fees by July 22, 2022 will receive a discount: 

$160.00 per student per semester ($320.00 per year) 

Payment must be received or postmarked by July 22, 2022, to receive the discount.
