Dawson is pleased to offer the Greenride bus program again for the 2020-21 school year. Our centralized bus system continues to be fast, fun, safe, and convenient, not to mention time saving and affordable too! Dawson offers to all of its families a centralized-stop bus program that is convenient and, with the flat fee structure, affordable.  We believe that this program is both time and cost effective for parents, students, and the school.   

The safety of our community is Dawson's top priority. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be following the guidance of Boulder County Public Health with regard to transportation, including completed health screening prior to boarding, assigned seating, and rider numbers capped.

Program Benefits

Low Fees: Fees are close to the cost of the gas it would take to drive, and we are happy to announce that 2020-21 rates will remain the same.

Centralized Stops: Convenient and time-efficient.

Environmental Impact:  Each student who switches from riding in a car to taking the bus saves 5,000 lbs of CO2 per year.

Increased Safety:  National research demonstrates that with enhanced visibility and collision safety features, riding the bus is almost 100 times safer than riding in a car.

Increased Time for Parents:  Frees up hundreds of hours for parents over the course of the year.

Permission to ride the bus: Bus drivers may not transport any unauthorized passengers. If a student not regularly assigned to a bus needs a ride, written permission in the form of a note or an email from the student’s parent must be sent to the school in advance.  If a student needs to ride the bus and does not have a note or email from his or her parent, authorization must be obtained from the appropriate divisional office at Dawson. A bus driver will not transport a student without written authorization from a parent.  Parents need to complete authorization as part of SchoolDoc documents.
