Youth Transportation

No child will be transported unless an Emergency Contact Form is on file with DellsXpress. This applies to all children riding the bus regardless of the number of times a child will be riding. This form is for your child's safety.

Rides cannot be charged. If your child does not have proper bus fare, they will not be able to ride the bus. There are no exceptions.

It is your responsibility to contact us regarding changes in your child's schedule. For safety reasons, we cannot take information regarding transportation changes from your child or daycare.

A wave at the door from your daycare provider, babysitter, or from a parent indicating someone is present is needed and appreciated for your child's safety.

Routes are determined by our routing software - there are no guarantees on pick-up or drop off times.

Please contact DellsXpress if your child has not reached their destination within 30 minutes of pickup time.
