Temporary Suspension of School Bus Passes

Due to the restructuring of school bus routes and the limited number of seats that are currently available, the Gallipolis City School District, Transportation Department, is temporarily suspending the approval of school bus passes for students that do not already ride an assigned school bus.  This suspension also applies to students that currently ride a school bus, but want to ride home with another student on a different school bus.   

We apologize in advance for any inconvenience, however the safety of our students and ensuring that every student that is entitled to ride a school bus, has a seat available to them, is our top priorities.

This temporary suspension will be reevaluated and may be modified in the future to allow the use of bus passes on specific days of the week or on certain buses that have adequate space available.
