Dawson Transportation : The Mustang Express

Dawson Transportation program 2022-23
Dawson is pleased to offer an eco-friendly transportation program for families and staff. We have rebranded our program with a new name and logo, The Mustang Express, formerly Greenride.
Our centralized bus system continues to be fast, fun, safe, and convenient, not to mention time-saving and affordable! Dawson offers its families a convenient, centralized-stop bus program with an affordable flat fee structure.  This program is time- and cost-effective for the whole Dawson community!   

Program Changes – due to fuel costs and temporary staff, we have combined a couple of routes and made some changes to stops and pricing. Please make sure you check out the routes for changes.
Program Benefits
  • 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. 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 year.

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