Bus Transportation


Providers: Glenbard contracts with First Student for regular education transportation services.  Hopewell Inc. provides transportation services for our special education transportation needs.  

Routes: Glenbard uses transportation routing software to lower transportation costs and increase efficiency.  Bus routes may be different from one school year to the next as routes are re-evaluated. Route information for your student will be available on-line, on your school website. 

Bus Route Information: Students that are eligible for free transportation (living 1.5 miles or further from Glenbard West High School) will find their bus route number as well as pick-up and drop-off times and locations on their schedules at Back-to-School Week. Additional transportation information can be found on Glenbard’s Bus Information page.

Student ID – Ridership Requirements: Students are required to present upon request their student ID to any bus driver or Glenbard staff member.  Students not able to produce their ID will be required to receive a temporary pass to ride the PM bus.  Students not able to produce their ID will be referred to the Deans’ Office for appropriate consequences.   Students will be responsible for riding their designated buses. Bus drivers and school administrators will deny requests for students to ride other routes than previously assigned unless pre-approved by the Deans’ office.
