Edina Public Schools is committed to providing a safe and enjoyable ride to all of its passengers. We transport more than 8,000 students to and from school every day.

In addition, we transport students for field trips, fine arts and sports teams, and between schools for other academic programs. As a district-run transportation service,  your children are our students, too! We take pride in beginning and ending each student’s day on a positive note

Transportation route information is posted on the parent portal in August. If you have questions about your child's route, please contact Transportation Services.

Safety & Behavior Guidelines

Pay-to-Ride Option

Students getting off of the bus

Eligibility Area

Minnesota state statute requires school districts to provide transportation at no charge for all students who live more than 2 miles from the school they attend. In Edina, we have expanded the eligibility area to include students who live more than .7 miles for elementary students and more than 1 mile for secondary students. (See School Board Policy 713)

Non-transportation Area

Under state law, parents or legal guardians of students who are not eligible for district transportation are responsible for their student's travel to and from school. The district offers a Pay-to-Ride option for students living in the non-transportation area, students living in Edina but within the Hopkins school district boundaries, and elementary students living in the walking areas. The Pay-to-Ride option is not available for intra-district transfer students.

Special Education Transportation

The school district provides transportation for special education students according to the child’s Individual Education Plan. If your child has special needs that require transportation different from regular bus service, please work with your student’s case manager or call Student Support Services

Activities Buses

Secondary students who are registered for after school activities will receive Activity Bus passes for transportation to their neighborhood based on a limited route schedule.
