They are currently being utilized by less than 50 percent of those registered to ride them. For questions about acquiring a bus pass for your child, please call mil 337-2240 or civ (0611) 705-2240. Also, if buses are parked around school, dropping off or picking up students, drivers may pass them. It is a DoDEA and garrison expectation that parents walk their child to and from school/bus stop.
