Bus Fee Information
Riding the bus is a safe and efficient way for your child to go to and from school. To encourage bus ridership, NPS aims to keep the bus fee reasonable for families. K-5 students, regardless of distance from their school, ride the bus free of charge. A fee of $350, with a family cap of $700, is paid by all other students.* (see 6th grade note below.)
Key points of information:
- K-5th grade students – all students in grades K-5 do NOT pay a bus fee
- 6th grade students – if you reside LESS than 2 miles from the school, you pay a fee of $350. If you reside MORE than 2 miles from the school, you do NOT pay a fee.
- 7th – 12th grade students – all students in grades 7-12 pay the fee of $350 to ride the bus
Please note that regardless of whether payment is required, all students must have a bus pass to ride the bus. When you register, payment will not be requested if you are not required to pay.

There is a family cap of $700. This means that every family, no matter how many students, pays no more than $700 each year to utilize bus transportation.
Families may apply for a fee waiver based on financial hardship so that no student is denied bus transportation. To apply, please fill out the financial assistance application form found in Aspen.
