First Student believes that every student deserves reliable and safe transportation to school. We also understand that charter, private, magnet and even some public schools may not be fully equipped or funded to accommodate the transportation needs of all their students.

Ride-to-School is a fee-based student transportation service that is contracted through the school, but paid for by parents. The program gives students and parents the same great service — without impacting the school’s budget.

Reliable & Dependable Service:
Parents and students receive the same safe, quality service we provide to our customers across North America.

Convenient Online Account Management:
Parents are conveniently able to enroll, make payments and manage their accounts online via our secure portal.

Affordable & Flexible Payment Options:
One size doesn’t fit all when it comes to busing — or payments. That’s why we offer payment options that suit parents’ individual needs.

Dedicated Route Schedule:
Our scheduling system alleviates school carpooling hassles, parking lot gridlocks and pick-up/drop-off coordination issues.

Unmatched Safety:
Busing with First Student is one of the safest decisions you can make for your students. The American School Bus Council reports that students are about 50 times more likely to arrive at school safely if they take the bus than if they drive themselves or ride with friends. First Student is the industry leader in safety, operating two times safer than the industry average.

Communication:
We offer direct communication with parents about service offerings, pricing and flexible payment options.
