The Columbia School District provides transportation to and from school for all resident students in grades kindergarten through eight (K-8) who reside one (1) mile or more from their school of attendance, and for all resident students in grades nine through twelve (9-12) who reside two (2) miles or more from their school of attendance.
Parents of students ineligible for transportation per the above-referenced policy may, on an individual basis, contract with Student Transportation of America for transportation service. This service will be provided if requested by parents, but only in those cases where the number of students and the routes of travel justify such an arrangement. Pay ridership will not be considered if it requires additional bus routes or a significant deviation to an existing route. The per-student cost of pay ridership for the 2017-18 school year is $169.20 per semester.
