Welcome to the Elyria City Schools Transportation Page
The Elyria City Schools, partnering with First Student, strives to transport students with both comfort and economy while following all of the state mandated procedures. We will do our very best to accomodate all of your transportation needs.
NOW AVAILABLE!!! First Student will be providing their FirstView Bus Tracking App to Elyria Students for parents to track the location of the buses for their students. This will be a great communication tool. Please see the Parent App Flyer (Spanish) and Frequently asked Questions (Spanish) to help get you started. Please contact your child's school building if you do not know the student ID number.
For general transportation questions, contact First Student at 440-284-8030.

Bussing will be provided for eligible riders but parents must be aware that social distancing on the bus will be not be possible in many cases.
Bus transportation is available to students who live more than 1.25 miles from their home school or if the route to school is deemed hazardous by First Student. Addresses included on this list are eligible for transportation (open enrollment not eligible.)
If your address is not included on the eligibility list and you would like to request bus transportation, please complete a conditional form and First Student will make a determination and contact those who've applied. Please note, conditional requests will be reviewed after all eligible riders have been assigned by First Student and availability will depend on space.
Masks must be worn on the bus and seats will be assigned. Riders must sit in their assigned seats.
Because social distancing on buses is a concern, individual transportation is advised.
You can find more information on bus transportation or reach First Student Transportation on this site.
