The transportation program in the Mequon-Thiensville School District aims to provide safe, reliable and efficient transportation services for all eligible students.

The school district provides transportation services to over 4,200 kindergarten, elementary, middle and high school students by contract with Riteway Bus Services, Inc. For complete information regarding eligibility, routes, walking distance and alternative transportation, please read MTSD's transportation guidelines.

Alternative Transportation

Along with home-to-school and school-to-home services, the Mequon-Thiensville School District offers additional transportation options to provide flexibility to our families. Students may be picked up and/or delivered to a point other than their home designated bus stop if the criteria listed below are met:

  • An Alternative Transportation Request Form must be submitted. This form is required annually or anytime service other than home to school is desired or changed. Forms should be submitted directly to your child’s school office.

  • The alternate service requested must be within the student’s school attendance area and space must be available on the alternate route. A list of community day care facilities served by the bus routes of each elementary school is also provided on the Alternative Transportation Request Form.

  • A regular pattern of delivery is required each week. A regular pattern of delivery is defined as a schedule which remains the same each week.

  • Requests for returning students for the upcoming school year must be submitted prior to June 1, 2017. Requests received after this date will be granted on a space available basis.

  • In order to stabilize regular routes, MTSD will not accept any alternate requests for the 2017-18 school year between August 14, 2017 and September 5, 2017.

  • During the school year, a minimum of three (3) working days’ notice from the date the form is received in the school office is required before the alternate service can begin.
