School Bus Passes

Castro Valley Unified School District is pleased to be welcoming students back to campuses for the 2021-2022 school year!
With current COVID protocols and CDC/CDPH recommendations, we are not able to run buses at full capacity at this time. Due to limited space, some of the routes and schedules have more applicants than we have spaces available. We will be offering a lottery for bus passes this year.
Guidance from the CDC and CDPH is ever-changing. As restrictions change, our capacities may change. A waitlist for future passes will be generated during this lottery.
There will be no bus available for zero period. At this time, passes being offered are the following: Annual All Day (AM & PM), Fall All Day (AM & PM), and Spring All Day (AM & PM). In order to accommodate maximum allowed capacity, we will not be offering AM Only or PM only passes.
Students utilizing CVUSD transportation services will be riding with other students. CDPH protocols and guidelines (in conjunction with district policy) will be followed. Face coverings for students and staff (excluding those persons with a medical exemption as provided to CVUSD) are required at district transportation stops and on district transportation vehicles at ALL times.
Bus stops for each route can be found here (stops and times are updated as of 7/20/2021):
Please be sure to review the routes carefully as the stops and times have changed (from previous year[s]). Your student will only be able to choose one stop for both pick up AND drop off.
ALL DAY.............................$565
SEMESTER (Fall: 8/10/2021-12/17/2021 and Spring: 12/18/21-5/27/22
ALL DAY………………..... $350
For the lottery process, we will utilize the Student Number (a 4-digit number) found in the AERIES Portal, not the Student ID number. Please note that many students do not know or realize that they have two numbers in their AERIES profile.
