Student transportation will be based on home school attendance boundaries. Families that elect to continue utilizing schools of choice (Erickson, Holmes, Estabrook) will be offered a transfer bus that will transfer their child from their home school to/from their in-district school of choice.

Transfer buses will provide students with color-coded tags that will attach to their clothing or backpack to indicate which transfer bus they will ride. Staff will be provided to assist and ensure students ride the correct transfer bus in the morning. The same service will be provided in the afternoon. This will greatly reduce ride times and will only impact Estabrook, Erickson, and Holmes students. Perry, Ford, Beatty, Ypsilanti International Elementary School (YIES), middle school, and high school students will continue with direct routing from the same bus stop to/from the school of attendance.
