Generally speaking, there are two types of students who do not qualify for yellow school bus transportation:
  • Students who live outside of MASD boundaries and open enroll into MASD
  • Students who live within two miles of their home school (per Wisconsin state law).  Exceptions are made for students who have to cross a hazard along their walking route.  Hazards are identfied by the Waukesha County's Sheriff's Office.  Most commonly, hazards include railroads and county/state/federal highways.  Crosswalks and other similar attributes are considered by the Sheriff's Office in making this determination.
If your MASD student does not qualify for transportation and you would like to purchase transportation for the current school year, please complete this request for a pupil transportation contract by clicking on this link.
The annual cost for daily, round trip transportation is:
  • $550 for the first student
  • Half of this amount for the second student
  • Not additional charge for subsequent students
Dollar amounts will be pro-rated if the contract is not for daily round trip transportation. 
If you have any questions, please contact MASD Transportation Coordinator, Cori Maroszek at

  • Any student who does not fill out this form will be picked up and dropped off at their primary household address each day. 
  • If you have multiple students who need a specialized bus arrangement, please fill out this form once for each student.

Message to Parents:
  • Always make sure your children know your emergency plan if they arrive back from school and you are not at home. These emergencies should be planned for and discussed ahead of time.
Message to Students:
  • Share your seat with students new to your school. They are often shy and afraid to ask to sit by you.
  • Be courteous to others on the bus, including the bus driver. No one enjoys being picked on or treated rudely.
  • Share with a teacher or parent any negative incidents that take place on the bus.
  • Remain seated at all times. The bus driver can't concentrate on the road if you are causing a disturbance.
  • Clean up after yourself if you drop something. It's a good idea to check under your seat before you leave the bus.
  • Be on time each day.
  • Don't ask bus drivers to drop you off in a strange place. They are looking out for your safety.
  • If you miss the bus, notify your parents by phone, so they don't worry about where you are. Have parent phone numbers handy so you can call them from school.
