Districts Currently Providing Bus to Metro 

  • Columbus 

  • Groveport

  • Hilliard 

  • South-Western


During May & June, districts that provide busing to Metro need parents to complete the registration process. This allows districts to set bus routes over summer and have all students assigned to routes before school begins.

If you live in a district listed below and would like to take advantage of bus transportation, please follow the instructions as outlined. Registration should be completed by the date set by your district or before end of June (whichever comes first). Students not signed up for busing by the deadline will not be routed in time for the start of classes in the fall.

When completing bus registration forms, please use your child's legal name as it appears on their birth certificate to avoid any issues with your request.

Columbus City Schools

You only need to register for busing to Metro once. CCS will roll over bus registrations from year to year while you remain enrolled at Metro.

For first time riders, a parent/guardian should visit the Columbus City Schools website Charter and Non-Public Transportation request page and scroll down to the link to complete the online registration. The page includes a "how to" video should you need assistance. The student and parent legal name must be used when completing the registration to avoid issues matching students to their school enrollment. (Please note that we may be listed as "Columbus Metro" on the list of schools to choose from for busing.)

Registrations will be reviewed to determine if transportation can be provided. If deemed impractical, you will receive a form offering Payment in Lieu of Transportation.

Groveport-Madison Local Schools

Registration for busing must be completed annually for new and returning students.

Parents must submit the form below along with proof of residence (a lease or mortgage statement or a current utility bill), which can be emailed or dropped off at Peterman Transportation. Pick-up/drop-off can be different for morning and afternoon but must be the same Monday-Friday. For questions or to submit forms, contact

If deemed impractical, you will receive a form offering Payment in Lieu of Transportation. Please sign the form and return upon receipt.
