AVSTA BUS INFORMATION
All High School General Education Students MUST RENEW SMART-TAG BUS PASSES EACH SCHOOL YEAR TO RIDE THE SCHOOL BUS. Renew by clicking on the Smart-Tag Order Form below.
The SMART-Tag system is software that allows our transportation administration team to oversee all school bus activity. This will ensure that all transported students are loaded onto the correct bus as well as unloaded at the appropriate stops.
For parents, there is a web-based Parent Portal that will provide access for parents to sign up for SMART-Tag alerts and receive emails or text messages when their child’s bus is approximately 10-15 minutes away from their stop. Parents can go through the sign-up process on the “Locate My Student” tab. There are two important questions you must answer when registering your student. You must select AVSTA when entering your student's school district, and when entering the student ID number, you must enter your student's 10-digit Student State ID. If you need assistance getting the Student State ID, call your student's school. Parents, please note that Transportation Release Information is now being processed through the Portal. Assign guardian(s) for your student during registration, you may also add guardians or make changes at any time.
ALL general education high school students within the boundaries will be provided transportation services free of charge. Therefore, the $100.00/per semester or $200.00/annual fee will no longer apply. High school general education students must renew their pass by completing a new Smart-Tag Order Form each year. A $5.00 fee will be charged for each replacement pass and must be picked up at AVSTA; 670 West Avenue L-8; Lancaster. A replacement pass may be ordered in person or from the Bus Rider or Smart-Tag Portal.
All Special Needs Students will receive their SMART-Tag pass at no charge, including replacement passes.
To order in person, come to the AVSTA office; 670 West Avenue L-8, Lancaster. This service is available to High School students for New and Replacement passes only.
INCOMPLETE ORDERS WILL NOT BE PROCESSED.
