Shuttle Bus Service

As a convenience to our families, Cole Valley Christian Schools is pleased to offer shuttle bus service between our elementary and secondary campuses.

Shuttle bus service for the 2018-2019 school year will begin running full time on Wednesday, August 22. 

The regular schedule is as follows:
  • Leaves the elementary campus at 7:40 a.m.
  • Arrives at the secondary campus at 7:55 a.m.
  • Leaves the secondary campus at 8:00 a.m.
  • Arrives at the elementary campus at 8:20 a.m.


  • Leaves the elementary campus at 3:25 p.m.
  • Arrives at the secondary campus at 3:45 p.m.
  • Leaves the secondary campus at 3:50 p.m.
  • Arrives at the elementary campus at 4:10 p.m.
The morning bus leaves from the west side of the Elementary Campus parking lot promptly at 7:40 a.m. It arrives at the Secondary Campus by the David Hazen gymnasium. Supervision is provided for waiting elementary students at the Secondary Campus in the Commons area of the gym beginning at 7:40 a.m. The bus leaves the Secondary Campus at 8:00 a.m. and arrives at the Elementary Campus at 8:20 a.m.
In the afternoon, elementary bus students gather by the flagpole behind the main building immediately after the 3:15 p.m. dismissal. The bus driver leads the students to the bus, which is parked on the east side of the campus. The bus leaves at 3:25 p.m. and arrives at the Secondary Campus at 3:45 p.m., dropping students off beside the David Hazen gymnasium. While supervision is available until 4:00 p.m., parents are strongly encouraged to pick up their students as soon as they depart from the bus. Secondary students riding back to the Elementary Campus arrive around 4:10 p.m.

Bus Pass Pricing:

Annual Bus Pass


Ride all you want during the school year. $1.50/ride
All other riders $3.00/ride   $3.00/ride
Annual Bus Pass:
  • To purchase a bus pass, select it in the Shopping Cart from your Smart Tuition account. 
  • At the beginning of the school year, students at the Elementary Campus will receive a pre-printed ID card (no picture) with their student ID number on it.  If an Annual Bus Pass is purchased, the student will be able to use their ID card to ride the bus and charges will go to the Smart Tuition account associated with that student.  If a student needs to ride the bus but doesn't have the Annual Bus Pass, they, too, can use that card and the Smart Tuition account will be charged at the per ride amount. 
  • The pass will have a barcode that will be scanned each time the student uses the bus.
  • Students at the Secondary Campus will have their photos taken at the beginning of the year for their ID card.  It will have a barcode on it with their student ID number.  This card will be used the same as explained for the Elementary Campus students above.

Any students riding the bus without an Annual Pass:

  • The charge per ride is $3.00 and will be billed to your Smart Tuition account. 
  • There is no punch card anymore.
  • If your student rides the bus occasionally, your student will be checked in and your Smart Tuition account will be charged for the ride.  No payment needed at the time of the ride.

All students that ride the bus will be issued a bus pass that will be shown upon entering the bus.  If a bus pass is lost, there is a process in place to still check your student in for that day while a replacement card is issued.  There will be a fee to replace the card if it is lost.

Please call the school office if you have any questions: (208) 947-1212
