Bus Routes

The Transportation Department oversees the safety of our most precious cargo – our students – making sure they are safe en route to school, home, or school activity. The transportation department also wants students to be safe while they are waiting for the bus.

View a list of the street names in the format used by the program.

When you submit your information, it will search the map information. If your address cannot be located, it may give a list of possible options to select from and you can rerun the search.

If it tells you that the Home address could not be located and the address format is correct, your address may be outside the Union District. Contact your child’s school or the Enrollment Center for clarification.

If your address is found, you will get a page giving you the name of the school of attendance, bus status (ride or walk), the distance from the address to the stop (or school if a walk area), the stop location and the bus number and time. The bus number is usually the same AM and PM.

No afternoon return time is given due to the number of factors that may affect it.  As a general rule, your student should be home 30 to 35 minutes after their school’s release time.

Union Public SchoolsBus Passes

The primary purpose of Union Schools bus service is transportation for eligible students to and from home.  Therefore, students are expected to ride their neighborhood bus each day to and from school and get on and off at the designated stop closest to their home.

Students who wish to ride a bus other than their neighborhood bus must obtain a Bus Pass.  To request a bus pass, please email [email protected] with the following information:

  • Student name
  • Student school
  • Student grade level
  • Parent/Guardian name
  • Parent/Guardian phone number
  • Home address
  • Reason for request
  • Destination address

Once all the information can be verified and if space is available on the desired route a reply email will be sent to you.  This process usually takes about 72 hours.  Students may not ride the desired route until the driver is in possession of the bus pass.

Students who are new to a bus route and who intend to ride that bus continually should obtain a bus pass from their principal who will indicate on the pass that the student will ride the bus on a regular basis.  This will notify the driver that the student is a permanent addition to the bus and avoid confusion the first time the student attempts to ride the bus.


Ice Route Information and Road Conditions

Download South Alternative Stops

During inclement weather, please check your favorite news outlet and the Union web site for updates on closings or cancellations.  For important, time-sensitive communications, the district also uses its automated messaging system to send phone, text, and email information to parents, staff, and students.  If you have changed contact information, please notify the Communications Department at 918-357-6015.  Parents may also call the Union Public Schools Recorded Information Line (918-357-7065) for school closing information.

Each winter, the Union Public Schools transportation department is charged with developing routes on which school buses may travel safely during inclement winter weather. While most areas of the district have only minor weather-related problems, the area bounded by Yale and Sheridan and between 76th and 91st Streets require alternate stop locations.

Alternative bus stops may be called into use when weather conditions are such that school will go on as scheduled, but because of snow or ice, the hilly roadways in the area become dangerous requiring drivers to use arterial streets instead. Students living in this area have received maps listing the alternate stop locations for their bus. A copy of these alternate stop locations is also available at each secondary school and Darnaby Elementary. Other elementary schools’ bus routes are not in the affected area.

Students living within the affected area will be notified via the Connect Ed messaging system when alternate stop locations will be used.

Native American Heritage Month

Native American Heritage Month is a time to celebrate rich and diverse cultures, traditions, and histories and to acknowledge the important contributions of Native people. Heritage Month is also an opportune time to educate the general public about tribes, to raise a general awareness about the unique challenges Native people have faced both historically and in the present, and the ways in which tribal citizens have worked to conquer these challenges.
