Youth Transportation

Children ages 3 and up can ride the bus without an adult. No child will be transported unless an Emergency Contact Form is on file with Freeman Community Transit. This applies to all children riding the bus. This form is for your child's safety.

It is your responsibility to contact us regarding changes in your child's schedule. For safety reasons, all transportation changes for your child should come directly from parents/guardians and not from the child.

During pickups and drop offs, a wave to the driver from an adult indicating someone is present is needed and appreciated for your child's safety.

Kids LOVE riding the bus!
